Re: Yahoo Support Yes, it's pretty scary when "records for 20 million federal employees, including security clearance data," are found by who knows who. While there's certainly more than should and can be done to prevent these issues, Ellison really has a knack on how scare folks to use his products and services while at the same time talking bad about competitors.

Re: Yahoo Support The OPM hack is really scary. That database includes a bunch of personal info on high-level folks in the US government. More needs to be done to secure our data when it comes to third parties that hold it.

How does one win a cyberwar? > "One of course involved Equifax Inc. , in which 143 million Americans lost records..."

Well, it turns out 2.5 million more people were affected... but what's a few million people among friends? 


I wonder exactly how nation-states use this PII data? Do they sell it to thieves to fund further operations? Are they ruining the credit of particular people who might be key diplomats or who hold some strategically valuable government positions? Is that really that effective as a way to "attack" the American government? 

I can understand maybe getting medical information and somehow using it against key government employees somehow, but ruining a person's credit or finances? 

It seems like there's a simple-ish fix, too -- create a better system than using SSNs to identify people. Sure, that's not exactly easy, but it's not exactly rocket surgery, either.
