Re: Not again
Thanks for the summation. I wanted to read further but since I don't have a subsciption to WSJ and don't intend to unblock ads for the Washington Post I cannot. What SSO Solution was in use? This is a rather large flaw allowing anyone to reset a password without valid authentication that you are the owner of the account.

Re: Not again
This article is click bait. The systems were not "hacked." What has been reported is that the three schools in question had a flaw in their password reset protocol that allowed unauthorized users to reset passwords. So it wasn't Slate, rather it was the SSO password reset solution in use at the schools.
