Another large conglomerate has been hacked and 5.9 million people have had their information looked at. Not to mention the Totally Shoddy Bank. Shouldn't we all be concerned that computers really aren't the answer we thought them to be. These days they fly planes, sail liners and cargo ship, run medical operations, operate at every level of our lives even drawing the curtains ! Alexa Get Me Out Of Here !!

Personally I'm not bothered about information hacking. If the computers (who make my life much easier) want to steal my account details then fine - they'll be able to pay off my overdraft.

You seem to think that it is the computer that is at fault here, when in fact it is human error as well as a massive failure in server security. Companies need to pay more attention to how they store information. Most, if not all data breaches are due to poor security and outdated software ( as well as unpatched) being used.

No, computers aren't the weak link, operators of computers are. Please stop spreading stupid ideas about how computers are weakly secured, especially considering its a human that programs it.
No system is ever fully infallible, but stop posting inflammatory content on technology that you don't understand because you set your Facebook password to "Password1" and someone guessed it and outed you

I like BONFIRE NIGHT, and of course all the out-meetings which go on around this time - and the loud bang at the crack of dawn!
