You'd think they'd have better defences

from here and here

At first when I read about the British Army getting their online accounts breached I was thinking they should have better defences, but then it dawned on me - they're stuck with the same tools we are. Online sites don't have a special set of security features just for the military. Those sites aren't holding back security features from the rest of us that could help us protect our accounts. We're all in the same boat and that's why we all get the same outcomes. 

But it is really weird to think that the military is just as vulnerable as the rest of us when it comes to online account take-overs.
