Steve a rather timely editorial ... listening to CNN broadcast this morning. Salient points --
1. FAA (Federal Airtraffic Authority) had someone hack into one of their networks and compromised over 18,000 passwords and login names...
2. State of Virginia reported that the database that tracks the usage of restricted drugs had been hijacked .. copied by a hacker... the state so far has refused to divulge what data (name, address, doctor's name for example) is contained in the database.. This highjacker offered to return the copy of the db for a ransom over 1,000,000 USD.
So security is a REAL and EVERY DAY problem and the quicker it is recognized by DBA's and management the better off we all will be.
If everything seems to be going well, you have obviously overlooked something.
