Fuckups happen. Hell, valve got sensitive steam details leaked after a forum hack (also a security no-no; the forum server shouldn't have had access to the steam servers), and I got an email from trion worlds the other day about them being hacked. But the difference? They didn't try to pretend that is was supposed to be that way, or that it wasn't their fault.
