    Just got the mass email from SoftWareRevue of WHT:

    I haven't been there in months and I got to say I am pretty shocked to see WHT successfully targeted and to this extent.

    Over the years I have sometimes, time allowing, followed the threads there including the ones about their own issues.
    I guess the lessons that will eventually be learnt from this are going to be sobering.

    If they off-site tape, you can't delete those!

    You are right, one of the primary lessons here is the need for a physical backup. For large enough sites and businesses that should be seriously considered.

    It's a shame that some people will hack a site like WHT and then sell the usernames and email addresses online... It's all about greed. :(

    And yes, physical backups are important. I've learned that a few different types (both on- and off-line).
