Central Square and Fort Worth, hacked again. And again. And again.

The NBC affiliate in Fort Worth (read the story here) reports that 3000 people who paid their water bills online were, uh, badly gored. What they didn't report, but that I have on three other occasions) is that Fort Worth has been badly hacked twice, and Central Square at least once. Since these entities have turned off the email spoofing/impersonation protection, one might ask…? Oh well, I'm laying off on the profanity this week. But how do some people keep their jobs?

What to see my other stories? Click in the upper right-hand corner on the magnifying glass icon, and search for either Fort Worth or Central Square. Or just wait for another Central Square muck up in tomorrow's post. Hopefully, these guys can spell L-I-T-I-G-A-T-I-O-N.

Oh, and a note to the cottage industry law firms that ask me for advice: Dump the legal boilerplate on your letters, like this one:
