There are other methods of protecting end user data. Just make sure you change your passwords regularly on anything you care if they get access to. You know... like financial stuff...

I am kinda surprised at how relatively easily data has been available to these hackers... Having worked at a financial institution and a few government facilities over the years, I know we can protect the data very well. Of course there's nothing completely hacker proof... The trick is not to be the low hanging fruit. Disable administrative and root account remote access. I mean you could require a 255 character password and changed every 7 days, but then you make it harder for the average user to get in....
