Psssst. Hey. Hey. You awake? That’s what a lot of activists would like to ask you and billions of other people today. We’re here with our mumbo-jumbo-destroying roundup of the top actual news in cyberwar, hacktivism, and related fields. Let’s let the InfoWars and Chemtrails people fight things out between and amongst themselves while we get on with our respective days containing neither mumbo nor jumbo. Hopefully today contains at least one piece of good news, if only that your workplace and peers are not mentioned in the news headlines on a cyberwar and hacktivism site, which is rarely if ever a good thing.
