Blackmailing Dot Coms
from the not-the-best-bug-fixing-system dept
I generally give people the benefit of the doubt on how smart they might be, but sometimes you just have to wonder. The lastest is a student who tried to blackmail an eBook company after he figured out a way to break their protection scheme. Instead of telling them how to stop it, he said he wanted money, free downloads, a car, and a few other small things in exchange for not telling the world. Of course, he then told them how to contact him, leading to his prompt arrest.
