A case study we’ve just published explains the challenges faced by Peter Justen, chief executive of MyBizHomepage, a Middleburg, Va., provider of business accounting software. The business was shut down by a wave of cyber attacks that apparently came from a disgruntled former employee.
Mr. Justen founded the company in 2006 to give small-business owners an easy way to view their financials and isolate important metrics. A serial entrepreneur, Mr. Justen raised several million dollars from investors to start the company, which its investors valued at $100 million at its peak in 2008. At about that time, Mr. Justen and his board, seeing tremendous growth opportunity for the business, especially in international markets, turned down an offer to buy the company. – The New York Times

Exploiting weaknesses is the name of the game. We still use the word Trojan as an idiom or a punch phrase to scare people; what we forget is that after Troy nobody was able to skillfully use the method. Every General was aware and remedied their defense strategies.
Even after so much of damages done and yet more worse expected we still accept software that generalize a Trojan attack. When strict identity controls are executed, no one else can access, read and benefit from anything that one stores in a computer, whether on the cloud or at home.
