“Community” does not usually take too much inspiration from real world headlines in the vein of a “Law & Order”-style procedural.  It instead tends to ape and play around with pop culture.  But recent hacking scandals have converged with media such that for “Community” it is right at home, almost a little too close to home.  This is a show produced by Sony, the victim of one of the largest-scale hacks ever.  A community college does not have the same reach as a worldwide media conglomerate, but it still has a significant virtual ecosystem that can be exploited, and so it was with Greendale.
