Sadly, one "woman" can breach 106 million peoples data!

I never expected this to be done by one person. This time it is done by someone who identifies as a female.

I wonder if Amazon got breached to as the "woman" worked for Amazon.

So this person has the ability to hack into a major corporations computer system but canít figure out what sex he/she is?

I'm curious. Why the quote marks in "woman"?

I'm also curious why you think that such a breach requires a team. I think that a security breach is a security breach, the amount of data vulnerable to a breach is only important for its newsworthiness. I mean, if my computer got hacked into, even the Penny Shopper wouldn't care.

It only takes one. There is a hacking convention every called Black Hat where hackers of all ages show how easy it is to hack into election systems, banks, credit card companies, ect.


Last winner of the election machine hack time was a teen who did it in less than a minute. We have a false sense of security when it comes to electronic data.

Usually the people breaching data at companies are men...not very often one single female...not single as in not married as I have no clue about her marital status (oops is marital allowed or is that now a word under scrutiny)

What will the females defense be when she is in court?

Maybe some type of mental issue...

It doesn't matter how she self-identifies; the important thing is how our information seems to be at high risk with so many companies.
