Is It Still A Hack If The Content Was Available In The Open?

As the investigation continues into the supposed hack of California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger's computers, apparently the evidence is now pointing to his gubernatorial race challenger, Phil Angelides' offices. Of course, Angelides' team has a pretty good excuse: they claim the content was on an open server, not protected at all. It's not yet clear if this accurate or not, but if it turns out to be true, it's hard to see how anyone can accurately call that "hacking." Most people, I think, would simply call it incompetent.
