LXer: I challenged hackers to investigate me and what they found out is chilling

Published at LXer:

Itís my first class of the semester at New York University. Iím discussing the evils of plagiarism and falsifying sources with 11 graduate journalism students when, without warning, my computer freezes. I fruitlessly tap on the keyboard as my laptop takes on a life of its own and reboots. Seconds later the screen flashes a message. To receive the four-digit code I need to unlock it Iíll have to dial a number with a 312 area code. Then my iPhone, set on vibrate and sitting idly on the table, beeps madly.Iím being hacked ó and only have myself to blame.It's a few months old, but still pertinent. -ed.
