Bankuari errua botatzea, ez lapurrari

banku lapurra

There's an onslaught of blogs and sites predicting the demise of Twitter after some noticeable accounts were hacked. Gune batzuek hackerrei buruz beldurrez eta Twitterrekin hitz egiten dute batera mespretxua (epidemia bat ?!). Zer gertatzen zaio munduan jendeari?

Egia esan, aurkitu nuen mezu batzuk -k utzitakoa hacker to be quite humorous. That's not to say I don't hold the hacker accountable, though. He made the decision to process scripts that did a dictionary attack on a Twitter administrator. After his attack worked, he logged in. After he logged in, he reset other account passwords. After he changed the passwords, he logged in their accounts. There are Wired-ren hackaren xehetasun guztiak.

Hackerrak krimena filmatu zuen eta jarraitzeko arrasto polita utzi zuen:

Twitter isn't an e-commerce program, holding your credit card data. Twitter doesn't have your social security information. Twitter doesn't pretend nor try to be a universal authentication package. Twitter's intent was never to let this happen. While their approach to security best practices may have been lacking, it's still not their fault that someone out there decided to hack them.

Imagine Twitter was a bank and the hacker was the robber. When the bank-robber works to find flaws in the security and eventually cracks the safe, do we blame the bank? No, we don't.

Twitterrek erantzun du. Had the hacker notified Twitter of the security breach and they did not correct it, I would hold them accountable. The hacker had the opportunity to do just that… but didn't.

    "Banku lapurrak segurtasunean akatsak aurkitzen lan egiten duenean eta azkenean kutxa segurua pitzatzen duenean, bankuari botatzen al diogu errua? Ez, ez dugu ".

    Ez dugu !? Bank of America enpresan lan egiten dut. Konfiantza nazazu, bankuak egingo luke erabat segurtasun akatsen errua jaso. Bai komunikabideetatik eta baita bezeroengandik ere.

    Gauza bera esan daiteke Twitterrekin. Hackerrek eragindako erasoaren eta azken istripuaren ondorioz gertatuko da? Seguruenik ez. Baina pertzepzioa Erabiltzaileen artean, gunea ez dela segurua, nire ustez, bere sistema seguruagoa dela dioten beste SocNet gune baten aurka baztertuko dute. Agian ez orain, baina denborak - eta hackerrek, bai, hackeatzeko irauteak - Twitter belauniko jarriko du.

Zer deritzozu?
