follow-up-on-t-mobile-security

So this weekend, the blog started getting a ton of hits from google searches for "Paris Hitlon T-moble hacked SideKick" etc. I couldn't figure out why the big rush all the sudden until I read the Register this a.m..

According the Register , someone figured out her password. Time for me to lob another call to the CTO at Sidekick, perhaps? Think they might need a strong authentication system that runs on a java-enabled wireless device?

It's clear it's not Nicolas Jacobsen, who broke into T-Mobile previously and just plead guilty. (OK, so it's not 100% clear, but assume he's not 100% stupid.). The dates on the e-mails are from Saturday, Feb. 19th. Chances are it was just someone who watches her show and knows the name of her dog and that's what she uses as a password. Perhaps, not however, there are indications that T-Mobile's security is still lacking.
