Recently, there have been many verdicts where judges punished hackers for their crimes. It seemed that this might convince hackers to stop dealing damage. However, it appears that hackers are still a threat. Some time ago, hackers took over Comcast’s website and left a message stating that they had “RoXed” Comcast. There was some serious damage done since many of the 14 million subscribers had problems accessing their web-based email. Fortunately, there was not any permanent damage done as far as we know, however, I think that this event shows that hackers are still out there. In fact, they might be even more dangerous than ever before. Some suggest that it would be a good idea to employ such individuals to protect companies from other hackers. Naturally, this is quite a controversial topic.
