TGIS: Thank God It's Schadenfreude! (292)

This week's joy in the misfortune of others comes courtesy of examiner.com (from Wednesday, October 20; link good at time of posting):
It's always hilarious when a security firm has its site hacked or has some other security-related SNAFU occur that you would think their own products could prevent. Such is the case with Kaspersky Labs, which recently saw its site not just hacked, but serving up malware.

Reports first came from users on Kaspersky's own support forums. The company initially denied the issue....


Kaspersky, however, finally 'fessed up.


Kaspersky said that the attack didn't expose customer data and that the exploit was contained quickly after it was discovered, which took some time, we assume, since they were initially denying it.
