M.I.T. network security simply undermined by "... a network closet ..., like many buildings on campus, is kept unlocked."

Did it ever occur to them that the way to stop such a 'network intrusion' was to lock the network closets to prevent the unauthorised access?

Leave your front door unlocked and then act surprised when someone walks in and 'robs' you?
 
Really? Isn't an unlocked room in a public building... a public room?
Sad they find a scapegoat for their own failings.
