Re: NBC websites hacked

Um ... shouldn't NBC sites be pretty invulnerable to attack, given their relationship with Microsoft?

When an entity that big with pockets that deep is hacked, you know there's a story there somewhere.

Microsoft and NBC end 16-year MSNBC partnership - Jul. 16, 2012

NBC is of course owned by Comcast, but Comcast has also been pwned more than once.

Entities that big are hacked because they are that big. Who (other than perhaps you), would care if someone hacked your Flickr page?
