Throughout the age of cyber technology...one thing has always been a menace to our electronic productivity.
There is only one force that can disturb the power of the internet. That force manifests itself as hacking.
Ever since computers were available, people (with their natural evil tendencies) wanted to steal others' information. And so they did.
A recent hack on Adobe could possibly be the largest ever. 152 Million Adobe accounts were discovered by the security firm LastPass to be compromised by hackers. That's 152 million credit cards...now at the hands of a smart computer user.
Although the information has been restored quickly, some hackers have been more lucky.
In July of this year, four men successfully hacked into the NASDAQ, among other megacorporations like Citibank, PNC Bank, Heartland Payment Systems, 7-Eleven, and JCPenney. Stealing credit card informatin along the way, these four men "owned" the NASDAQ while they had control over one of the world's largest financial database.
I've had a personal encounter with hacking on this website.
An anonymous user has breached my account and has recently posted a blog post...
Some people want to watch the world burn.
