Who's next?

Unless it was an operator or hardware error masquerading as an attack,
the usual pattern is someone else will get hit fairly soon with the
same attack.  The operational question is there anything which can
be learned from's experience so the impact on the next victim
is less?

The CNET article indicates believes the attack was something
new, or at least something they had not seen before.  Is each future
company doomed to experience attacks before figuring out what to do
to defend themselves?
