Hackers, Internet's friend or foe?
Shawn Henry, an executive assistant director at the FBI, is stepping down after twenty years with the agency, citing frustrations with fighting a losing cyber-war. Hackers have proven themselves capable enough to sneak into the mainframes of companies such as Sony, NASDAQ, the CIA, FBI, and a litany of others. Even HBGary Federal, a cyber-security firm, was hacked. They even stole the source code for Symantec's Norton anti-virus software and published it to the internet.
