Interwebbed: Crypto and Cyber Headlines for August 4

Under the Tracks

Under the Tracks

Apologies for Wednesday’s missing link roundup; it has been run to Earth and put in the stockade until it learns the benefits of promptness. The elision was occasioned by a spectacularly amateurish hacking attempt on our site and associated Gmail, and we are consoled by the fact that said perp is now crying to his mommy about his now-defunct Amazon, Chitika, and Adsense accounts. And those three websites of his we had taken down.

Poor thing.
