Monster.com: yet another breach

Monster.com has recently experienced yet another breach.

"As is the case with many companies that maintain large databases of information, Monster is the target of illegal attempts to access and extract information from its database. We recently learned our database was illegally accessed and certain contact and account data were taken, including Monster user IDs and passwords, email addresses, names, phone numbers, and some basic demographic data. The information accessed does not include resumes. Monster does not generally collect – and the accessed information does not include - sensitive data such as social security numbers or personal financial data."

More information on the Monster dedicated page.

Twice ... in two years - that's two too many times. I wonder what efforts they took after the first breach? Obviously they weren't enough. Now, I have to wonder what they'll do this time around and how they let it happen.
