Submission + - Sony Crowned 'Epic Fail' at Pwnie Awards (itproportal.com)

hypnosec writes: Hackers’ hot favourite victim Sony Corp. has won an award at the Black Hat conference held in Las Vegas this week. However, much to the embarrassment of the company, the award it nailed was in the category of the “Epic Fail” of the year. The Pwnie award, which is kind of close being an Oscar equivalent in the hackers-community, awarded this ‘honour’ to Sony following the series of hack attacks it was subjected to a few months back, which saw the company’s PlayStation and PC Gaming Networks, as well as many other services suffering heavily through the hands of cyber criminals.

Submission + - Swiming Pool Stolen (cnn.com) 1

techiemikey writes: So here's one i'd like to see slash dotters out there explain. CNN reports that a pool was stolen out from behind a woman's house in New Jersey without spilling a drop. It was a 10 foot diamater above ground pool that holds approximately 1000 gallon's of water. Police say the obvious, "Someone took a little time and effort thinking about this". I now need to know...how can one silently steal a pool of that size?

You are in the hall of the mountain king.
