To carry that out a step further, what percentage of all account hacks occur after business hours on Friday night? One would think you could build a staffing model justifying more people on the weekends with that data alone.Every account hack I've heard about from friends (including my girlfriend) happens at the beginning of the weekend, and it isn't resolved until early the following week (giving the hacker at least 2-3 days of unfettered account access). All of this info is in those databases if they want to dig it out.They staff people to clean up the mess. They should staff people to prevent the mess from happening in the first place.I have an authenticator on my account. I tell everyone I know to get one.I may be a little bitter about this =)
