Those who do not remember the past are condemned to repeat it

Writing about web page http://www.warwickboar.co.uk/boar/news/unitemps_database_destroyed_in_professional_hacking_attack/

A university spokesman [...] claimed that the attack has no bearing on the security of the University server. Unitemps does not use the University's secure server and so "any lessons to be learned would not apply to the rest of the network."

In other words… "it couldn't happen here"! You have to wonder why we'd go to the bother of learning any lessons at all.
