Here a small list of recent hacks which made it into the news. As always in IT Security, only a tiny fraction of breaches make it into the news. The tip of the iceberg. The bulk number of hacks remains either undetected or unreported.

A very interesting and slightly worrying article from CNN Money. We are dealing with the tip of the iceberg. It’s well known that only a fraction of actual security breaches and hacking activities make it into the news and media. Imagine how many corporations are silently infiltrated and hacked for years without even knowing about it. Scary article.
