Twitter hacked

Twitter has been hacked again (previously it was Barack Obama's account). This time it seems that the hacker obtained the passwords from an employee (probably involuntarily given by the employee) allowing him/her to access many internal documents, some confidential. So probably a mixture of lack of security and lack of careful use of computer systems.

Если врач знает название вашей болезни, это еще не значит, что он знает что это такое. Никогда не приписывай человеческой зловредности того, что можно объяснить обыкновенной глупостью. Человек может долго жить на деньги которые он ждет. Реальность это иллюзия вызываемая отсутствием алкоголя. Женщины едят за разговорами, мужчины едят заедой.

WEll it is an interesting comment which makes one wonder if one should allow some comments! I do not speak Russian, so here is the translation I gathered:
"If the physician knows the name of your illness, it does not mean that he knows what it is. Never ascribe to human malignancy that can be explained by ordinary stupidity. A man may live long on the money that he waits. Reality is an illusion caused by lack of alcohol. Women eat for talking, men shall go eat."
How pertinent is this?!
