OUTED: Internet Hacking Group Identifies Amanda Todd's Tormentor
KHQ.COM: An Internet hacking group has identified and outed the man they believe responsible for driving Amanda Todd to suicide.
In an act of vigilantism, the Internet hacking group, Anonymous, posted a video to YouTube identifying the man they believe tormented Amanda Todd for over a year, eventually driving the 15-year-old to suicide. The group alleges the man, a former Facebook employee, is the man who, after asking Todd to show her breasts in a video chat, recorded the video and blackmailed her, causing her to change schools several times after being mercilessly teased and bullied.
After identifying the man by name, Anonymous goes on to list his personal information, including home address. The group also admits that they could be wrong by stating, "At the most this is the person who did this to Amanda Todd, and at the least it's another pedophile that enjoys taking advantage of children."
Almost immediately after the video was posted, the Internet mobilized in force, and people started to warn the man to "sleep with an eye open," raising concerns about vigilante justice and the new idea, and dangers, of a "trial by Internet."
Todd posted a video describing the relentless torment she faced from others on the web, and a month later, committed suicide. Her death has caused Dany Morin, a member of the Canadian Parliament, to introduce a motion to increase funding for anti bullying groups around the country.

Passwords for some of the most popular internet sites, including Facebook, Twitter and Google have been stolen and apparently leaked on the internet. SpiderLabs says it uncovered the passwords during its latest internet sweep for the "Pony Botnet Controller," a malware-spreading set of programs. What this basically means is that the passwords were not leaked by Facebook or the other companies, but from thousands of computers infected with the malware.>>
