Talk Talk Victim

If I had all teh doors and windows wide open in my property whilst I was out and I was then burgled I might feel like a victim but I would not be as far as insurance company (or anyone with half a brain cell) was concerned.

If you are a major ISP then shoddy security that a few script kiddies can break is not being a victim it is being inept (ignoring security as a niggly cost expense). If they had good security and someone used a zero day to breach them, or some very sophisticated social engineering then they could be more like victims,

Sport priority says it all though & reveals exactly why the were hacked so easily.
