    Wow! I'm not versed on hacking and such, but I was able to follow along with this article.

    Just wow! Imagine if Singapore and China were hit.

    I can't say much but my company was brought in by Sands in the wake of this event.

    It was a real mess.

    They are constantly going on, especially for big businesses but even smaller businesses and websites will constantly have hackers probing them and trying for ways to get in.

    Good article, thanks for posting. As much as companies claim their infrastructure is bullet proof, this shows that it clearly isn't. The tend these days is to outsource infrastructure and put everything in the cloud, which might make data even more vulnerable. I think we will see a lot more of this down the road.

    BTW I enjoyed the picture of the old Sands and the original Sands billboard .... can I still get the $9.95 buffet?
