That is essentially what you are saying. It is funny to watch everyone suffer because you, and a lot of people here, happen to have this hate against corporations. It isn't logical, it isn't right, and these guys deserve some extreme prison time. You could trust the companies holding your information, even if they have no security. You can trust them, if groups like lulzSecurity didn't exist. They are the reason you can't trust anyone.
this is when you know youve been sitting too long on games

Hacking group LulzSec has launched attacks on a number of new sites and companies, ranging from review site The Escapist through to indie hit Minecraft.

The attacks apparently came about after LulzSec started taking requests on Twitter in an event LulzSec called #TitanicTakeoverTuesday.

The group targeted the login servers for online games EVE Online and League of Legends, preventing users from playing the games and taking down the website for EVE in the process. Minecraft's login servers were also targeted, though Mojang were quick to react to the attack. Games website The Escapist was also taken down as part of yesterdays attacks.

CCP, the developer of EVE Online, explained that the attacks came in the form of distributed denial of service attacks and that no subscriber information or payment details had been compromised.

'Our policy in such cases is to mobilize a taskforce of internal and external experts to evaluate the situation,' said CCP's Jón Hörðdal. 'At 17:55 UTC, that group concluded that our best course of action was to go completely offline while an exhaustive scan of our entire infrastructure was executed.'

LulzSec has previously targeted other games companies, including Sony, Nintendo, Bethesda and Codemasters.

Show me where a single person was defending the security firms for not doing their job properly. Using a straw man after your argument has been shown to be riddled with holes isn't going to work.

Imagine waking up one morning, discovering all your credit cards are maxed out, and not knowing it was because some black hat hacker hacked company X and stole all your information.
Now you're just trying to justify one evil is better than the other. There are harmless ways for hackers to expose security flaws that do not negatively affect the company, its emloyees and most of all, the customers.

I quoted one of the post. The others followed or preceded it. And my argument is far from being riddled with holes. You have no understanding whatsoever about a security firm does. You keep talking about one cannot fully protect a website, or how it's hard to find "hidden vulnerabilities", like it's not their job to discover them, and they simply wait for the hackers to do so and they simply patch them up.

What kind of low standards are those?
By your logic, if a plane is designed with a flaw that causes it to crash and kill hundreds of people, the engineer is not at fault, because it's such a "complicated" system, and he's only human and he couldn't have possibly been discovered that flaw.

Truly doubtful. Did Sony even bother upgrading their security after the attacks by Anon? No. Because no long term damage has been made. Lulz had to do long term damage. Quite simple.
