RSA Hack - Stealing from the Lock Smith

RSA is a security firm that provides a SecurID product used by 40 users.  Basically they provide a token that is carried and provides a code that changes every 30-60 seconds that is also entered for a login.  This way without the token logins should be secure.  The problem is the seed and the algorithm for the tokens was stolen from RSA in a hack.  This was used in the hack of Lockheed Martin.

It seems that RSA had poor security on their own network.  I guess the idea of the cobblers children having no shoes.
