ISP Rogers, an unprotected database, and you, the customer

Bleeping Computer is reporting a breach with an unprotected database of Canada’s Rogers ISP. No credit card and password data were exposed, according to Rogers. “We’re sorry for the inconvenience” they say, but we’re sorry isn’t going to cover a mistake like this, because in my opinion, we’ve heard this before. I do give them credit on removing the offending database immediately, and putting out the statement, which is the best in circumstances.

If you are a Canadian and use this ISP, they will be in communication with you if they find that you are impacted by this. I’m confident that most may.

    Hmmm someone is going to get fired.
    There shouldn’t be an unprotected database anywhere at any time.
    Well this virus well its the worse time to fuck up if there is any good time to have a fuckup.
    Isps are a critical bit of infrastructure and people will depend on them to keep the net active.
    Especially when they are locked down!
    Just like water.
    Yesterday, there was a water leak near the house, it was reported and some people quickly fixed it and it took most of the night.
    We will start to depend on all our infrastructure, and we need it at full power.
    One thing’s for sure I’d hate to be the poor bastard that loses his job over this.

    Hello Shaun, yes, I’d hate to be the one to lose my job over some mistake like that. If they’re a bastard, then so be it. I can’t help stupid and stupid should go.
