Bank of France Hacked: Password Was 123456

Holy cow, this story is funny on many levels. Some random guy hacks Bank of France after entering a password of 123456. Officials take two years to track him down, even though they had his address. The man was eventually acquitted.

"In 2008, my client, then unemployed, trying to avoid premium rate numbers using Skype" software that allows telephone calls to go via the internet, told Sipa Laudic-Hélène Baron. "By entering a random number, then dialing code simply 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, he came very easily in the debt service of the Bank of France, without even knowing where it was BECAUSE any message showed him where he was.
