CNET Hacked - Sold Data for $600

In the latest Hacker strike, Russian hacking group 'WOrm" recently compromised the CNET user database and stole over 1 Million user accounts, email adddresses, usernames and more. Unfortunately, the user information has already been sold. It brough one single Bitcoin - or about $622 curently. That means that while Facebook thinks their users are worth well over $20 each, it takes 16 CNET users to add up to $0.01. Ouch.

It definitely can feel like a slap in the face to an organization to be hacked, but in reality, most of the time in circumstances like this it's actually a good thing," Hansen said. "W0rm was careful not to give the full path to the actual exploit, and informed the general public that the compromise occurred.

ROCCAT @ CES 2014

We met up with ROCCAT to take a look at some of their new offerings for this upcoming year here at CES 2014. 


ROCCAT has a new line of headsets, the Kave, which has a couple different versions (an analog version and a digital 5.1 surround version). We didn't get much of a chance to demo these too in-depth but given ROCCAT's track record we are looking forward to getting them onto the BCCHardware test bench for some more testing.

ROCCAT was also showing off their lineup of keyboards which is highlighted by the Ryos mechanical keyboards. The Ryos keyboards aren't new but they have introduced a new smaller version of the Ryos dubbed the Ryos TKL which is the same keyboard minus the number pad to make it fit into tighter desk configurations where a full keyboard might not work.

October Video Game Blitz

If you're a gamer, you'll want to be saving your money. There are a few games coming down the pipe that are definitely worth checking out. Things will kick off with Super Smash Bros. (3DS) and then it just gets even better from there. Games coming down the pipe include Battlefield Hardline, Civilization: Beyond Earth, Assassins's Creed Unity and a lot more.

That's a lot of games. And we're not even counting the indies, digital releases, and other surprises that haven't been announced yet (looking at you, Assassin's Creed Comet). Prepare your wallets-and vacation days-accordingly.
