Edward Snowden’s successful exfiltration of mountains of data from NSA systems and databases has once more put the spotlight back on the threat that insiders pose to organizations.
The developers of popular Internet forum software vBulletin have announced late on Friday that their network has been attacked and successfully breached, and that the hackers involved have accessed customer IDs and encrypted passwords on their systems.

The Adobe hack is truly gargantuan, what with all the stolen source code of a number of extremely popular software and the exfiltrated database containing user email addresses, poorly encrypted passwords and associated hints in plaintext.
