I doubt it...it's more an example of not having enough time or staff to do
a job properly at institutions, not matter their size.  An inexperienced
admin, perhaps someone new at it.

Sometimes people that are not used to running production systems start
doing it without thinking of all consquences.  What works great on your
private network doesn't translate well to outside.

I'm really curious as to if the break in came from inside or outside the
campus.  Haven't heard that info yet.
