Awesome, we have a winner for our aperiodic :-) "Nobody Is That Dumb ... Oh, Wait" "contest."
So, why give this prestigious award to these assclowns? Here is why: "The Ameritrade spokeswoman says the company believes no Social Security numbers have been taken because the only known illicit activity traceable to the breaches is spam, not identity theft."
Oh, that makes perfect sense! Do the words "... that we know of" ring a bell? No? Then your f*cking bell is broken! :-)
Rich Mogul has some fun comments here. Also, check out his poll on how people think it was breached.
There is one caveat, however: if logs from those databases were collected, preserved and now can be analyzed, I'd actually take the above statement seriously and will have to eat up my "Nobody Is That Dumb ... Oh, Wait VII" entry... Something is telling me this aint' happening though :-)
