No room for cowards
Brian Krebs was the keynote speaker at a MAAWG meeting a few years ago. He is a tech journalist that knows and understands the dark underworld of online crime. Yesterday, his website was taken down by a dDOS attack and the Fairfax County SWAT team was called to his house by someone.
Brian does work that is risky. His contributions to what we know about online crime are extremely valuable.
His post talking about what happened yesterday is well worth reading.
