Yep.  Add to this the appallingly stupid non-concept of "responsible
disclosure" and it becomes clear that companies are 100% concerned about
profits and 0% concerned about security.  One of the most galling things
about that story is that this statement from the company CEO (Edouard Taza):

        "We acted immediately to fix the problem, and were able to do
        so before anyone could use it to access private information."

was not challenged by the article's author, since it is of course an
obvious fabrication.
