QOTD - Scanning Humans and Machines for Vulnerabilities

Attackers look for vulnerabilities in both machines and people... This is to say, they scan Web servers for vulnerabilities which could be exploited to gain access to sensitive data, [and] they also look at individuals working for target organizations and go after them with targeted attacks, with the goal of getting access via the employee's credentials or identity. 
-- Phil Hochmuth, program manager of security products at research firm IDC
