.22 December 2004: Hackers vs. newborn babies
Rob Rosenberger's 12/22/04 column -- "Reporters give virus writers more privacy than they give to a victimized newborn." Teenage hackers bask in a level of privacy they don't deserve. The media simply will not identify them ... but they'll name a newborn child carved from the womb by a killer who performed an "impromptu Caesarian." Paparazzi respect the privacy of teenage hackers who commit global cyber-attacks ... but you just know they'll stalk that newborn child to the ends of the earth.

.21 December 2004: Southern Road Trip interview #13
Vmyths continues its series of computer security audio interviews. But there's a catch -- we interviewed everyone BUT the experts. And best of all, we interviewed folks in the deep south. It's time to learn what computer security and "cyber-terrorism" mean to the average Joe SixPack... This interview takes place with the employees of a Shell gas station somewhere in the south:

.29 July 2004: Phone call to mi2g
Vmyths has covered the antics of a firm known as "mi2g" for a number of years. (Check out http://Vmyths.com/resource.cfm?id=64&page=1 for their "hysteria roll call" resource.) We received a "cease & desist" email the other day and it looks like it came from mi2g ... but we honestly don't feel certain about its authenticity. We won't act on it until we can authenticate it.

We asked mi2g to confirm/deny the email in question, but our own email went unanswered. So we sent another email. It didn't get a response, either. You can guess what we did next -- we called mi2g and left a voicemail.
