Dear Leaders,

You can read about it on 
[arstechnicia](http://arstechnica.com/security/2013/07/nasdaq-is-owned-five-men-charged-in-largest-financial-hack-ever/).

Even more sad, is that most of those companies are companies effected by 
PCI-DSS regulations and as such should be very much aware of OWASP and 
the fact that we have freely given away solutions to these very issues 
for over a decade!

Jim Manico has even been willing to personally train people if you want 
extra help.

It would be tempting to feel that people just do not care, since they 
are presumably educated - but this is just not the case.

If you read the comments in the arstechnitia article; everybody is 
suddenly an  ultracrepidarious SQL injection expert and the advice given 
is entirely incorrect. :(




Cheers,

Dennis
