Curiosity, Ignorance, Malice - The Daily WTF

Jim called up an emergency meeting. “I was able to crack the security and get root access,” Jim began. An engineer audibly gasped.

“But how?” someone cried.

“All I had to do was modify the cookie and the lock file, and…”

“That’s stupid. Why would anyone ever do that?” His boss, Paul, shot a glare at him.

“I don’t know,” Jim said, “curiosity? Ignorance? Malice?”

“We can’t guard against malice.”

And it gets worse from there.
