True companies have to careful but generally once the water breaks, baby is on the way out and saying possible birth is rather silly. Good point. Being realistic at least.

Re: Non denial denial
And yet there was just article here on corporate response a week or two ago and how it is poorly managed. Agree. PR is always the hardest part after the attack.

Re: Non denial denial
You can blame lawyers and our legal system (and that entails) for all of the 'alleged' instances of misconduct, malfeasance and other acts of impropriety. Admit nothing and deny everything right to the very end.

Non denial denial
Possible access - gotta love use of the English language.  A broken window and door indicates it may be possible that a thief broke into my home.  Not probable, just possible.  As if that is kinda sorta not really something to worry about.  How about HONESTY and say we were breached, access to data was public and here is we have done and will do to protect your data in case YOU were compromised.
