Cardinals Allegedly Hack Astros

While the alleged criminal activity is certainly troubling, all I can think is, “why the Astros?”

The FBI is investigating the St Louis Cardinals on charges that the US baseball team hacked into the computers of a rival club to steal player data, the New York Times has reported.

The alleged cyber-attack against the Houston Astros is thought to be the first time a professional sports team has been hacked by another.

Trade discussions and proprietary statistics were reportedly targeted.

Major League Baseball has confirmed the investigation.

    Because the Astros are reputed to have the best stats DB in the business. The fact that the current Houston GM used to work for the Cardinals and his Cardinals login worked in Houston’s network had nothing to do with it.

    Yet another CompSec 101 fail.
