Here, security experts rate the shoe retailer's response to hack that exposed data on up to 24 million customers. Consider the eight lessons learned for other businesses.

Of course, this isn't the end of the Zappos data breach story. The company has yet to answer many related questions--such as when the breach occurred and how long attackers had access to its systems before the breach was discovered."


Submission + - Original cast onboard for Ghostbusters 3 (

bowman9991 writes: "Dan Aykroyd reveals that all the original cast have now signed on for Ghostbusters 3, including Sigourney Weaver, Bill Murray, Harold Ramis and Ernie Hudson. Apparently Bill Murray, who holds a one-fifth controlling interest, was very reluctant at first, not even willing to read a third draft of Aykroyd's script. Aykroyd would like to see Ivan Reitman or Harold Ramis direct, wants to introduce a "new generation" of Ghostbusters, and believes they could be filming the new Ghostbuster movie by winter."
