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.

Yeah, I liked how they didn't know they had gotten probed till the kid
*told* them, but were immediately able to verify that they didn't have
any other un-noticed exploits of the hole.  (Sure, you can easily grep
for the scanning tool's footprint, but it takes a lot longer to verify
there's no disguised attacks with a different footprint).
