QOTD - Marcus Ranum on ID Theft Victims

Meanwhile, the real victims - people who suffer from identity theft, lost time, or credit fraud - get a nice little letter telling them 'We made a mistake and it's your problem to clean it up. Have a nice day.' To me, the banks and payment companies who are suing each other and finger-pointing are a side-show; they're in business and are simply incurring an unexpected cost for mistakes made. Let's not overlook the victims: real human beings. -- Marcus Ranum, CSO Tenable Security.
