RuntimeError writes "The Times of UK report that a group of British Cr/Hackers have broken into the computer systems of atleast 12 multinational companies, stolen confidential files, and are holding the companies to ransom." One of the companies is Visa, as in credit cards. I believe this has far more hysteria potential than the recent CDuniverse inforansom scandal. Expect the usual pundits to be all over this story within the next few days.
