    So the fa turn a blind eye to a criminal act but doesnt allowe new owners of clubs to invest heavily !!....common denominator it would impact the fa's favourite clubs ....the fa who dont want to see their clubs nicked for hacking or for being knocked down the league by new investors in not so popular clubs........

    I can’t believe the scousers have been accused of thieving, surely that’s slander.

    OK. Understood, but you can see where I got it from...

    From his page on the Guardian: "Sachin Nakrani is a writer and editor for Guardian Sport"(https://www.theguardian.com/profile/sachinnakrani).

    This is his Twitter bio: Note writer and editor for Guardian Sport.

    Hackers and Coachwreckers FC will get an all-clean-as-Mané's-tackles but I suspect the perpetrators will have their bollocks hoisted and clamped between those Liver birds' beaks.

    Perhaps the £1million is chicken feed to the value of the stolen information or for other criminal activities carried out by LFC

    That doesn't mean he's sports editor. Just means he's an editor on sport. Could be a copy editor or commissioning editor. He's not sports editor.

    Yes. I got it now. He's not the Sports Editor, but an editor.

    The method of hacking that LFC might have used here could be considered in the world of IT as one of the least damning. Granted password hacking can be done in various ways, but the easiest way is when not so smart users start using passwords that are way to predictable. Immagine a container filled to the brimm with gold bars secured by the simplest of slots and having the key under the floormat below it. There is a point where one can argue that "someone is asking to be robbed". Would you really punish a thief so much for stealing a diamond ferrari when the doors was left open and the keys left upon the dash?

    In fact, from my pov i kinda "grant it" to "hackers" who get in by simply guessing the login and password right. It takes a certain fine skill of the one to do it, or the total lack of caution of the victim to propperly secure it.

    That said, there are various ways of password hacking that are far less innocent. In such cases the punishment should be way harder:

    -Brute force password hacking: This is a form of hacking where one uses software code to run trough potentially "almost every possible combination of login/password". This can take litteraly billions of attempts before you get a combination that works, but the code might run pretty fast trough those attempts. Granted, even with the speed of a program such efforts can take days and should be noticable to any network administrator that has his security set up right. This form of password hacking is quite different from the former as it takes a very concerted planned effort in contrast to the former where one can "just stumble on the gold".

    -Bribery: Getting someone on the inside to facilitate acces for you is a often employed technique in the world of hacking. Again something that should warrent a bigger punishment.
