Weekly Update 407

It's a long one this week, in part due to the constant flood of new breaches and disclosures I discuss. I regularly have disclosure notices forwarded to me by followers who find themselves in new breaches, and it's always fascinating to hear how they're worded. You get a real sense of how much personal ownership a company is taking, how much blame they're putting back on the hackers and increasingly, how much they've been written by lawyers. That last one, in particular, seems to have a knack for diluting all the useful information into high-level generic statements that tell you very little about what's actually happened. See if you can spot those in this week's disclosure notices. Once you see the patterns, you'll be spotting them all over the place in the future.
