Acer Exposes 40,000 Customer Records

Just as Sony seems to have gotten their vulnerabilities under control for a few weeks, Acer goes and gives away sensitive data from their customers.

It appears that an old username/password posted online to allow users to download a patch was used to gain access to not only over 40,000 customer accounts, but also Acer source code.


Will these companies never learn that security is something that needs to be taken seriously?  :(
