Submission + - Did Reuters employee who breached Tribune Media serves leak Reuters .XML source? (rt.com) 1

owenferguson writes: "RT is reporting that "the deputy social media editor for Reuters has been indicted by the US Justice Department for allegedly conspiring with members of the hacktivist (sic) movement Anonymous."

According to a justice department statement, "After providing log-in credentials, [Matthew] Keys allegedly encouraged the Anonymous members to disrupt the website. According to the indictment, at least one of the computer hackers used the credentials provided by Keys to log into the Tribune Company server, and ultimately that hacker made changes to the web version of a Los Angeles Times news feature.” Once could almost say he gave away the keys to the castle.

So it's interesting to note that all of Reuters.com's .XML source code was leaked last week just before this gaping goatse was discovered in their security aparatus. At least they're closing the barn door now."

  • Can someone correct the typo I made when writing SERVERS in the headline. F'n headlines. I'm fine with giving y'all stories for free, but could we maybe have some sort of editor in charge of doing snappy headlines and a final copy edit? Would make this place much easier to participate in.
