Comment Not surprising (Score 1) 122

For those in the Vegas IT/InfoSec community and have heard the stories (or have firsthand experience) of their hiring/screening process, this was only a matter of time. If you are screening out the folks with the hacker/InfoSec mindset (those that think differently/outside the box), are you hiring the best folks for the InfoSec role?

Seems the 'cool kids club' at Zappo's was not enough to defeat the attackers.

Submission + - Periodical Blacklisted411 disappeared again?

IrishMASMS writes: "It appears the periodical Blacklisted411 ( ) has disappeared again. After a little research as to why I had not received my copy lately; it appears they have stopped publishing. Their web site is the default Network solutions page; and I found a forum posting regarding the situation: which also mentions that the Blacklisted folks have done this before.

Is it that hard to be up front & tell your subscribers that you are going to stop publishing? Perhaps, even a refund on subscriptions?"

If it's worth doing, it's worth doing for money.
