Your argument contains a major flaw. How do you think he found that security hole in the NYC train system software and was able to describe how to fix it? You would have to intentionally breach their system and search for information like that. Apparently, all this person used to access information was their own ID's. This is AT&T's fault, and anyone could have been exploiting this. Andrew just happened to be the one that made the problem known. Let me ask you something. If I open the door to a public restroom and there is a naked women there, am I going to be arrested for peeping? No, the door was unlocked and therefore the fault is on her. Nothing but a PR stunt to protect their image.
