US Customs Owns Your Data?

Ok here’s something controversial for you guys to digest, there has been anecdotal evidence of US Customs seizing laptops before and examining the data…but it now seems to be rather more widespread.

Hackers Steal U.S. Government Corporate Data from PCs – AGAIN

Seems like a social engineering type attack again relying on human ignorance and stupidity. Based around some kind of malware reporting back to a central repository. Remember kids if a deal is too good to be true…it isn’t. Hackers stole information from the U.S. Department of Transportation and several U.S. companies by seducing employees with [...]

British Hacker Gary McKinnon Fears Guantanamo

A British man accused of being behind the largest ever hack of US government computer networks could end up at Guantanamo Bay, his lawyer has claimed.
