An LA woman was a victim of identity theft when a hacker got into her personal computer and used her name and social security number to access her bank accounts. She has launched a class-action lawsuit against Microsoft claiming that its Operating System is not secure enough.
That’s just silly. Let me just put a list of my credit cards in a file called “MyCreditCardNumbers.txt” in the “My Documents” folder. I’m sure it was no one at Microsoft that typed in her social security number into her PC. I’m also pretty sure Microsoft shouldn’t be liable for the actions of unrelated hackers.
