No soup for you....20 years!

Here's a bit on the recent indictment of a Florida man known as the soupnazi (man, I miss Seinfeld) and two Russians for the data breaches of Heartland, Hannaford, and many others. Facing 20 years and a $250,000+ fine and he still has other cases pending!

The funny thing is that he's a former informant to the U.S. Secret Service!

Lesson to be learned: test your systems for security vulnerabilities before the bad guys exploit them! Oh, and don't commit a crime against another business lest ye want to end up in the slammer. OK, one more to the Imperial U.S. Federal Government: know who you're dealing with...you've heard "trust but verify" right?
