The Hotel Room Hacker | WIRED

This story illustrates something fairly typical in the world of engineering.  Even the most thoughtful solutions to some applications are usually not complete just because no one thinks of all the usage models that are possible.  When issues arise, either inadvertently or when deliberately created, there could be enormous costs involved in finding and implementing a solution that best addresses the problem. In too many cases, people, or organizations, respond by trying to cover up their tracks or hacking up a temporary solution, hoping that the problem will just go away.  Sometimes the consequences are not good.
