Co-worker: Hey – did you hear on the news about the Hackers who were going to target Amazon, Visa and a few others that I can’t remember?
Me: yes…some kid got arrested
Co-worker: Ok – so I was going to buy the Kindle – and I wasn’t sure if I should use Amazon or not.
Co-worker: I didn’t hear that someone got arrested, thogh. So the threat is over?
Me: the hackers are just trying to do denial of service attacks–get the websites so overwhelmed with requests that normal people have trouble getting to it. they’re not trying to get at any personal information or anythin….and they’ll give up when it’s not trendy anymore.
