Submission + - Darl McBride, former SCO CEO, Fighting Back (sys-con.com) 2

An anonymous reader writes: Recently fired, the former CEO of SCO Group, Darl McBride, has suggested that there may be a shareholder lawsuit against the trustee running the company. Maureen O'Gara (yes that one) has published a copy of a letter McBride says he sent to the trustee, and which makes a number of allegations about how the company is now being running. Oh, and McBride still thinks SCO could make up to $14 billion dollars by selling licenses to Linux.
It's funny.  Laugh.

Submission + - Slightly unclear on the concept... (pasadenastarnews.com)

An anonymous reader writes: In an article in the Pasadena Star-News about online fraud, our law-enforcement friends caution us about the dangers of the Internet:

"I don't think the public knows how bad things have gotten," said Kathryn Showers, head deputy district attorney of the High Technology Crimes Division. "For example, there is a practice called `war ganging' where if someone has a wireless laptop, they can come and park outside your home, and if you don't have a router on the system to protect transmissions, they can monitor what you are doing and use your IP address to commit crimes."

So, disturbed by this but enlightened, I went out and bought a nice Ryobi 1/4" router at Home Depot, and as soon as I figure out how to plug it into my PC, I'm sure my DSL transmissions will be safe from war gangers committing any crimes.
