So much to catch up on

I have been in a team meeting/training all week and have had no time to read let alone write on all of things going on in the big bad world of security this week. I figured I would start off with some data breach news.

Lincoln National Corp. (LNC) last week disclosed a security vulnerability in its portfolio information system that could have compromised the account data of approximately 1.2 million customers.

Now, data breaches are going to happen. As long as there is information that criminals want to get then they will find a way to get it. But in this case it is really just people being stupid. Apparently there were groups of users sharing user names and passwords to access their portfolio site. Common sense security.
