Re: Can happen to anyone...

Yeah, right...

My Linux Mint install (I admit I am a fan) is currently using less than 8GB of disk space for the OS and all programs, excluding /home of course.

Windows 10 needs 20GB

All my passwords are complex and unique and my email address has already been liberated from several other websites https://haveibeenpwned.com/ so zero impact to me.

Here you have a FOSS community project that was targeted by some bottom feeder. They are upfront and honest about what happened, responding quickly to shut the problem down and inform the user base. Big companies should respond in the same way.
