Hacked or Phished

I really wish people would learn the difference between Hacked and Phished.

Hackers attack several BBC Twitter accountsSeveral BBC Twitter accounts, including its weather, Arabic and Radio Ulster feeds were hijacked by a group calling itself Syrian Electronic Army earlier.

Hacking means you have no control over what happens eg a java vulnerability....Phished...means you're a bloody idiot for clicking on something you shouldnt have and then being too stupid to look at the url when you entered the password etc.
