It’s been another wild and crazy week for the security community.
Scotland Yard arrested two suspected members of Anonymous and LulzSec Thursday.
Meanwhile, the major players in the browser market — Google (Nasdaq: GOOG), Microsoft (Nasdaq: MSFT) and the Mozilla Foundation — have chopped Dutch certificate DigiNotar off at the knees, apparently because it was slow to warn that hackers had broken into its network and issued rogue SSL security certificates.
Further, a security researcher released information that hackers could use to leverage Google’s massive bandwidth and launch large-scale distributed denial of service (DDoS) and SQL injection attacks.SECURITY
