Privacy, Security, Encryption RSA suffered a breach and data loss following an "extremely sophisticated cyber attack." Their investigation revealed that the information extracted from the company systems is related to its SecurID two-factor authentication products. The news of the incident spread through the community like wildfire and information security professionals are offering their take on this incident. We still don't know the technical details, but it's certain that RSA's brand has taken a big hit.

Also, can we please stop using "cyber" when referring to the Internet? Seriously, there's nothing cyber about it.

Buzzwords won't save your ass.

I agree!
Ans please no more Web 2.0 (no 2.0), user generated Content (everything is user generated) and clouds (let's call them cybers ;) ).

Also the topic has been scary. It sounded like "RSA broken". But it's just 2011 and apocalypse is planned for 2012!!

Take away the name "cyberattacks" and "web 2.0"..if it happens...headlines

"Report 80% decrease in "cyberattacks"...but 80% rise in internet exploits..."

"Where has Web 2.0 gone?...say hello to Web 3.0!! the new frontier with added HTML5 and browser API's!"
