So "giving them the username/password" is now "hacking?"

He was gone for two months and they didn't disable his account?

Somebody needs to have a serious talk with their IT security staff. Assuming that they have anything that remotely resembles an IT security staff.

The story, involving congressional action on taxes, had the words "CHIPPY 1337" inserted in the headline and other changes.

What a waste of access.

Hey, now, he's a social-media editor and he's using social media to edit.

Right?

You fire the guy and don't immediately delete his access? The company brought this down upon themselves.

I can't find that Palin/Biden debate macro where she gives out her first pet's name to find her email "hacked".  Pretend I posted it here.

"Social media editor"?  Just one dude to edit all the idiots?  Sounds like a job for a vast team of English teachers, psychiatrists, English teachers, mediators, English teachers, and English teachers.

"If convicted, Keys faces up to 10 years in prison on two of the counts, five years on a third, and a fine of $250,000 for each count, the Justice Department said. "

Launder money for drug cartels? That's a slap on the wrist. "Hack" an online article? Your ass is going to prison.  Ah "justice".
