Re: This seems out of proportion to the offense
Yeah I was just trying to think of a way to explain that the £230k or whatever they spent bringing everyone back wasn't ... his fault? And how dubious that is for securing anything: "I'm only paid to write code that assumes 'normal' input" is the next step?
If they couldn't stop brute force IP attempts that's a really really bad sign.
"blaming the rain for the leak in the roof" really is apt.
(Why am I on a moderation queue?)
Also I thought it was "Camelot lotteries LLC" or something? I don't gamble outside of the bedroom (also: charity that raises money via gambling....?)
