The Monster Mess: Hack or Not?

The Monster incident last week is the story that keeps on giving. I love it. It's my second most favorite breach after TJX.

Of course, purists are claiming it wasn't a hack. But the theft of personal data, even by sneaky social engineering, still makes this a breach, in my opinion.

Again, it's all there, the ingredients of a great breach. There was phishing, a compromised Ukrainian server and targeted attacks all over the place.
