update on Ohio University's security breach

Looks like there is some more information on the huge breach at OU. The tidbit I found most revolting is that the Computing and Network Services had an average of a 1.4 million dollar annual surplus over the past ten years. Not only is that money that could have been spent better securing their systems but there was still that much left after giving their employees special benefits like health club benefits which other university empolyees were not receiving.

The board of trustees approved of 4 million to secure university computers so it seems somebody there realized they would actually have to do something about it. Hopefully the network staff can either handle it or they find somebody that will.
