Key operations were knocked out of commission for two days causing hundreds of thousands of dollars in damage.

He did it to make room for change

A self-described "hacktivist" will spend 10 years in prison for illegally accessing computer systems of law enforcement agencies and government contractors. Before hearing his sentence, an unrepentant Jeremy Hammond told a federal judge that his goal was to expose injustices by the private intelligence industry when he joined forces with Anonymous. "Yes I broke the law, but I believe sometimes laws must be broken in order to make room for change," he said. The Chicago computer whiz and college dropout insisted his hacking days are over but added, "I still believe in hacktivism as a form of civil disobedience."

Cryptolocker raises concern

CYPTOLOCKER is a type of Ransomware that restricts access to infected computers and requires victims to pay a ransom in order to rescue their computers from criminals who take them over. It's so sophisticated that one US police force was hit by the virus and forced to pay a ransom using a new virtual currency called bit coins. Pfishing emails --which look legitimate, with subject lines like "payroll or package delivery" are the usual method of delivery.

Stuxnet multiplies

You've heard of Stuxnet --the destructive computer virus unleashed on Iran's nuclear facilities. It was believed to be the world's first cyber weapon. But now we're learning that it has a twin --and the twin actually came first and started eating away at Iran's nuclear facility at Natanz years before the more public version we learned about in 2010. The bad news for Iran's nuclear programmers is that it's not really clear how broad the Stuxnet family is.
