As a Network Security Specialist --- I just love WikiLeaks
Simply amazing that in this day and age, companies have such lax security.---the biggest excuse for companies to not secure--- "not in the budget".
WikiLeaks did not say how it had acquired access to the vast haul of internal and external correspondence of the Austin, Texas company, Reuters said. However, hackers linked to the activist collective that calls itself Anonymous said in January that they had stolen the emails and planned to publish the data -- so the public would know the "truth" about Stratfor operations.
Anonymous claimed at the time that the data it had stolen was not encrypted, a fact security analysts said would be a major embarrassment for a company related to the security industries.
The company stressed that this release did not represent a fresh hack of its servers.
“Stratfor's data systems, which we have worked hard to rebuild since the December hack, remain secure and protected,” the company said.

All of the passwords were like this: "Stratford1234" or similar.
Here's a link to their client list:

5. I will come clean
My addy is in the list, as one of the NON paying, but gets all the adds from them, people. Their free material is at times useful.
Yes I get a "buy my material" from them at least ONCE a week.
