Out of all these I think the most brutal security breach was AOL because they got domain hijacked.  But I think the VeriSign and Playstation hack effected more people and on a much larger scale.  The Playstation network I remember took a VERY long time to recover from the hack and then was hacked again.  Security is so important but no matter how much you secure something someone can almost always fine a back door especially if they have the time, resources and money.
