"WASHINGTON — The F.B.I. and Justice Department prosecutors are investigating whether front-office officials for the St. Louis Cardinals, one of the most successful teams in baseball over the past two decades, hacked into internal networks of a rival team to steal closely guarded information about player personnel.


Investigators have uncovered evidence that Cardinals officials broke into a network of the Houston Astros that housed special databases the team had built, according to law enforcement officials. Internal discussions about trades, proprietary statistics and scouting reports were compromised, the officials said."

Mumble, mumble, something, something, reusing passwords, COUGH!



Out of the hundres of entries that hit my Feedly everyday, I tend to just shake my head at most things, including this incident... until I walked in the door after work and ESPN Sports Center was all abuzz with this story.


When Sports Center is covering hacking, you know that it has become ubiquitous.
