The Hacker News Magazine - Anniversary Edition  - November Issue 06 In November of 2010 the team at The Hacker News finally achieved our ultimate goal of launching an online News Portal and Magazine addressing the tricky and complicated world of hackers and hacking. In our first year The Hacker News made our fair shares of mistakes, typical of first-time publishers, but our successes have been innumerable and The Hacker News has reached many of it goals in this often hectic and exciting  first year.

Calling All Hackers - Grand Prize in Sunshine State " Hacktacular " Challenge ! Calling all hackers: Data Analyzers, LLC (www.datanalyzers.com) in Orlando, Florida, is hosting the Sunshine State "Hacktacular" Challenge with a big prize for the top competitor – a full-time job with benefits and relocation allowance if you move to Orlando. Data Analyzers has an immediate job opening for a junior data recovery engineer. The four-year old firm specializes in data recovery, computer forensics and ethical hacking, and has enough corporate clients to keep its engineers working overtime to meet deadlines. Trouble is, very few people in the U.S. possess the skills to qualify. No two data recovery problems are ever the same, and security safeguards are evolving almost as fast as hacking technology. "Data recovery skills are so specialized that typical 'help wanted' ads, even at colleges and universities that offer graduate degrees in computer sciences, don't do the job," said An

Lush website is back online after hacking !

Lush website is back online after hacking !

February 24, 2011Mohit Kumar
POOLE-based cosmetics retailer Lush is back online after it was forced to suspend internet sales after hackers attacked its website. Lush closed the site last month and asked anyone who placed an online order between October 4 and January 20 to contact their bank in case their card details had been compromised. A temporary site was back up and running late on Friday, before the full website re-launches. Shoppers are now being directed away from the Lush site when they come to the checkout, making payments at the Worldpay site. An online message to shoppers reads: "You can shop with confidence knowing that your details will be safe. Meanwhile the rest of the site has been tested by external experts to check that our processes are all as secure as they can be." It adds: "Thank you all for coming back to us and trusting us to serve you again." Lush became aware that its security had been breached on Christmas Day and investigated, but only told customers on January 21 when it shut down i

Infiltrate is a deep technical security conference that will focus entirely on offensive technical issues. It will be the single-most important event for those who are focused on the technical aspects of offensive security issues. No policy or high-level presentations, just hard-core thought provoking technical meat. World-renowned researchers focused on the latest technical issues will do the presentations – demonstrating techniques you can't learn about anywhere else. In order to keep Infiltrate accessible, we are limiting attendance to 100 attendees. In addition to two days of seminars, Immunity is also offering training both before and after the event. Both Immunity's most popular class "Unethical Hacking" and a new offering, the Immunity Master Class are available. This is the only venue where these classes are offered to the public.
