Exploiting a router in place costs ways less than intercepting a shipping truck in the middle of the night and is much more scalable. Attackers can now own the entire Internet.
While there's something undoubtedly 'undergraduate' about this video published yesterday by the Melbourne lads from Juice Media (a university researcher and an English teacher), it demonstrates what a game-changing force YouTube and the blogosphere have become.

In the latest episode of Talking Business, Leon and Garry discuss the bucketloads of profit BHP Billiton recently announced – a 71.5% jump to over $1.1 billion, no less.

In the wake of the recent Tucson shootings - which saw six dead and 18 injured - WikiLeaks has called for prominent US media personalities to be held accountable for inciting violence.
