I don't disagree that I should talk to a security expert, but before you keep throwing accusations of libel around, you should probably talk to someone trained in journalism. Hey, that's me! How are you?As my journalism professor always said, truth is always a defense against libel. I know three things that are true: 1) This account had an Authenticator on it, 2) this account got hacked, 3) if it happened once, it can happen again. Are you disagreeing with me on any of those things?Nowhere did I say the system is broken -- all I've ever said, in this post or elsewhere, is that the Authenticator provides a good defense, but not an impermeable one. You can't libel someone by telling the truth and that's all I've done so far. Thanks for reading.
