Re: Subcontractor’s network compromised?
First, What difference does the "class" of computer make? Who cares if their storage network is on a mainframe or not as it was likely a workstation that was compromised -- and thus the criminals would have had access to whatever data the computer's user's credentials would have had.
Second, as the article clearly states, The Register had previously publicly identified Perceptics as the likely contractor.
This isn't Yahoo or MSN, the articles posted here do occasionally contain actual information if you actually read to the end.
