    Title of Article: Invasion of the Computer Snatchers.

    This article was deep enough to keep me interested without it having to offer up screenshots or snippets of code. This is a VERY good read, IMO. It will help people understand why they need to be vigilant in securing their systems.

    EDIT: hoping someone hasn't posted this already. I searched and didn't see anything.

    I stopped reading this article about half way through it. Reminded me too much of that NYC magazine writer a few years back who made up a story on a similar topic and got busted/fired for having no shame/integrity/etc.

    Not dismissing the ultimate advice of the article, but sometimes the source of good information still must be ridiculed. ;)
