Just heard on msnbc that the hackers used some little utilized...


software that needed only one password to access. The chairman of the board of Colonial said it was not some simple 123, password but a complicated one but they changed that immediately and met the requirement for better protection to add a second password. He then notified the FBI and he decided on his own to pay the ransom the very next day. But because the FBI was already following that particular group, they were right on it and were able to recover some of the that money.

Meanwhile, the Chairman of the Board or whatever his correct title is, said he knew he shouldn't negotiate with or pay terrorists, he did it for the good of the American people and our country against all his own personal beliefs. I'm not quite sure if I believe that part of his statement.
