Reading List June 5, 2013

As Vandals Deface U.S. Parks, Some Point to Online Show-Offs
Yes, because I want to go view the majesty of nature and see a bunch of damned tagging.

Support Grows to Let Cybertheft Victims 'Hack Back'
Sounds great on Twitter, not so great in reality. Until we are able to track down specifically who is doing the hacking, the chances of hitting someone who wasn't involved are too high.
