Dixons Carphone should forward their £500,000 fine to Agari and/or Microsoft

ZDNet reports (read it here) that Dixons Carphone was hit with a £500,000 fine for a data breach that affected 14 million people. Hackers collected personal data of Dixons' customers over a nine-month period: full names, post codes, email addresses, and failed credit checks.

The ever-helpful Mad Max suggests Dixons send the bill to their ace email impersonation/phishing/spoofing protector Agari. Actually, since Dixons also specifies Outlook in their SPF record, and Microsoft also uses Agari to protect against phishing, that Dixons split the bill between Agari and Microsoft.

Sincerely yours,
