This week a small Indian company made a name for themselves when Citizen Lab reported how they hacked too many people as “hackers for hire”. Nicknamed as “Dark Basin” is the company BellTroX InfoTech Services based out of Delhi. They attacked people from different backgrounds, journalists, NGOs, EU parliament members. You should also read the excellent story from Reuters on the same topic.

Must read

Many of the young readers never read the Hacker Manifesto published in the Phrack back in 1986.

Book for the week

I discovered Practical Typography and enjoyed a lot reading this. The book is filled with various practical tips and details, which we don't think much on a typical day. But, I feel this is something everyone should read at least once.
