interesting viewpoint. so sky, ntl, virgin etc.. couldn't be arsed securing their services. its only a multi-billion industry. why should they worry about small games that cost them 100's of millions every year. how many people can they afford to pay annually to crack such systems if it costs them hundreds of millions. rather a lot i would suggest. so unless you are secure in what you do i suggest you just have a think about the examples these people wish to make. all i ask is that you ensure your system is secure. no public server is secure.
