    "The sentence has to reflect the impact on public confidence in security systems and online business when someone breaches security in this way."

    I understand where the judge is coming from, but at some of the blame has to be laid at Zynga's feet for not having responsible, effective security procedures in place. These measures, such as changing the login passwords (at least of Admins) every 8 weeks or so, are neither expensive nor time consuming, yet Zynga did not feel the need.
