A setback for federal cyber security. The acting advisor to President Obama has resigned. After first leading the 60-day cyber security review, then waiting two months to see if she would be named as the permanent cyber security coordinator, the Washington Post reports Melissa Hathaway has given up. She will leave the Administration this month. Some 30 people have reportedly been considered for the job.
