Nuke hacker had by Feds
A Minnesota man has been arrested in connection with the alleged hack attack on a US nuclear weapons outfit almost a year ago.
Twenty-one-year old Benjamin Breuninger was arrested at home on Monday charged with breaking into a computer last November at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, operated by the University of California.
According to the FBI, whoever trashed the e-place did not endanger national security. Sure, they created lots of mischief and unnecessary work which cost a buck or two to put right, but that's all. Nothing, you know, "serious".
AP reported Breuninger was released on $25,000 bail.
Still, enough of news that's old hat. What about the escalating fuel crisis in Britain, which now threatens to leave pubs without beer?
If that happens, civil unrest will only be a whiskey - sorry, whisker - away. ®
