These days barely a day goes by where there isn’t some sort of network security breach or hack or malfunction of some sort. This year too we had the rise of groups such as Anonymous and Lulz that sought out attention for their activities. Here we take a look at the year in pictures of some of the key security problems that grabbed our attention.
Here we have a picture of FBI Cyber Supervisor Agent Cameron Malin (left) describing the anatomy of a computer hack as US Attorney Andre Birotte Jr. (centre) and Assistant Director in Charge of FBI's Los Angeles Field Office Steven Martinez (right) look on. The scene played out after the arrest of Christopher Chaney, 35, of Jacksonville, Florida, in operation "Hackerazzi" for targeting celebrities with computer intrusion, wiretapping and identity theft.
