Top Hacks, Breaches and Compromises of 2010 (So Far)

This has been a busy year for both hackers and computer forensic specialists. Whether it was the 4 million usernames and e-mail addresses swiped in a hack of The Pirate Bay or AT&T's Website hack that exposed the e-mail addresses of iPad 3G owners, the first six months of 2010 are a reminder of the realities of today's IT security landscape.
