Any security related media ho / douchebag could be a target and irish
people are not exempt (see zf03)

A good defensive strategy would be to not be a douchebag.. ;)

All very valid points (and best practices to follow). Kaminsky's sys  
admin skills are obviously lacking in some aspects or he was merely  
careless and probably arrogant.

Both himself and Mitnick are twats with the latter's role in the IT  
Security field being at the very least questionable IMHO. Whether or  
not any of us would be as targetted as those two is questionable, well  
maybe Eoin?
