A Bustling Week for Cybersecurity Justice
The Washington Post, By Brian Krebs
This past week has been a bustling one for cyber justice. The Federal Trade Commission announced a settlement in its ongoing case against scareware purveyors; a notorious hacker admitted stealing roughly two million credit card numbers; the Justice Department has charged a software developer from Arkansas with launching a series of debilitating online attacks against several online news sites that carried embarrassing stories about him. Finally, a federal appeals court decision gives security vendors added protection against spurious lawsuits by adware companies.
