Macworld passes were hackable. This just amuses me to no end. While Apple does not directly put on Macworld (IDG World Expo does), it is interesting how security by proxy can work. I would hope IDG World Expo’s developers are few in number, underpaid, and overworked to put out something like this. This reflects badly on Apple as well.
Which brings up the question of just how many and how bad can insecure practices be before they take in collateral damage? Can a mistake on IDG’s part be prevented by Apple? Should companies VA or pen-test each other? Should Apple have known better? Is there really any recourse for this as we move into the future security-be-damned?
If I find more details on the hack, I’ll update this post.
