    "Star-Wars" security hacked.

    Ok, this is a little old, but it is stil really funny. Not sure how many people heard about Experian (credit agency) being hacked by what appeard to be Ford Credit.... Anyway....

    "Our files are protected by state-of-the-art, Star Wars-style security and encryption technology," said Donald Girard, Experian director of public relations.

    I'd hate to remind everyone that star-wars security means several things:
    1. A little eyeball on a stick pops out to ask you for your username and password.
    2. Scanners will prevent you from bringing in your favorite hardware sometimes "We don't allow their kind in here"
    3. Blaster turrets near the internet kiosk. Enough said.
    4. Dumpster diving? Just remember, you could get caught by a slime monster, or... an employee might click "empty recycle bin", and you'd be flattened.
    5. Social Engineering made easy! "This is not the incorrect login attempt you're looking for."
    6. A little blue trashcan can hack into any system just in time to save people.
    7. Said hyperintelligent blue trashcan is still not immune to sticking his data plug into a power outlet.
    8. Said blue trashcan may be a trojan horse for a lightsaber.
    9. Intrustion attempts may result in planetary obliteration.
    10. Your modem goes 0.5 past lightspeed. Woot.
    11. Endless puns about using the source.
    12. Your favorite security site will actually be a wretched hive of scum and villainy.
    13. Your killer-application-running mainframe happens to have one small port about two meters in size which leads to your kernel. Can you call that a small closed-source oversight?
    14. Blast doors. You gotta have blast doors.
    15. Cortosis Firewalls.
    16. The Millenium falcon was a trojan horse.
    17. Stormtroopers are stupid. So are the average user today. No change.

    More to come when I think of them
