Oh they do, im sure they have a lot of firewalls and security software and such-but the thing is with computers, the only way to keep any computer unhackable-is to never connect it to the internet. Anytime there is an outside connection, you have a chance of being hacked, and a company such as this has LOTS and LOTS of outside connections. Its unfortunate, but, obviously, still possible. Is it right? no, but unfortunatly, it is what happenned.
