If you cannot do someone any good: don't do them any harm....
As long as you did this to one of these, the least of my little ones............you did it unto Me.
What profiteth a man if he gains the entire World at the expense of his immortal soul?

well, note that the keylogger in question was 2 years old roughly, at least a year old at the time of the event anyway.
I'm with the bank there, if there has been a definition for it for a year its negligence. If its new, its unlucky but probably still could have been avoided.
If the world doesn't stop annoying me I will name my kids ";DROP DATABASE;" and get revenge.
