Instead of focusing on the lady involved, perhaps holding Capital One accountable for their part in the matter may be a better thrust to this thread.

While it might not be okay to instigate such breaches, we might also consider it the actions of a whistleblower. Especially given the unusual way she went sbout disclosing things.

Sure, perhaps there is a little bit of hey look at me about it, but at the bottom of the trough it is actually the corporation that has ultimate responsibility.

I look forward to a statement from Capital One of regret that they allowed the breach to happen and will strive for better standards of security.

And that is actually a message for the entire industry.
