Right now, all we can say to all who have been the beneficiaries of hereditary privileges in that country is - they should not trouble trouble until trouble troubles them.

John Gunn, VP of Communications, VASCO Data Security says: "It’s a modern tragedy that so many innocent people will be victimized by hackers through no fault of their own, but simply because the stewards of their personal data failed to act in an appropriate manner to protect them. The implementation of simple and inexpensive security measures could have prevented this disaster."
