    Interesting news right on the heels of the Sony cyberattack.

    No immediate mention of how it was done. However considering the frequent discussions about cybersecurity I thought this would be news to discuss.

    Not a penetration into CentCom, hack was into the media sites. Meant to embarrass, I guess. However personal data was sent out.

    How did they get the contact info that was posted? The Maps?

    Was this stuff made up or gleamed from other social media sources?

    Saw on the news that the white house official was down playing it but still it doesn't look good regardless of it being twitter or youtube account.

    Right now I'm looking at BBC and across the pond publications and they're not saying much. US media is even less forthcoming.
