5 Companies That Had a Rough Week


Researchers at security vendor Trustwave this week said they discovered a stolen cache of millions of account credentials belonging to users of Facebook, Twitter, Google and other online services. The researchers said they believe the stolen data found on a malicious server is tied to the use of the Pony Botnet controller.

Experts said the discovery shows that many businesses still don't take the problem of IT security seriously. The find, they said, should be a call to action for business owners to thoroughly review their security practices.
