Not sure whether to laugh or cry at this ........

the bad guys noted that the Co were letting it be known that they were up far a substantial investment from VC's

so the attack vector appears to be one straight out of WWII with the posters all exclaiming that Loose Lips Sink Ships

yet again proving that the real hackers go after people - Social Engineering 101

the fact they are STILL trying to go after more money is just sheer Hollywood, although I doubt a script writer would dare to add that as a twist :o)
