    I'm sure you've heard all about N's story?a hacker compromised his accounts just for his Twitter handle.

    I covered the hack when it happened, but I wanted to take a deeper dive into internet security, and tell people how they can improve their security, and the steps hackers take when they're attempting to compromise accounts. Basically, how can hackers take control of your life, and what can you do to protect yourself?

    Looking for someone who's willing to talk to me about hacking someone. Without incriminating themselves: How do they pick accounts? What are the steps they take to gain access? How easy is it? Do people ever pay the "ransom" or does it just get suspended and returned to the owner? Besides selling the name off what other good or bad can be done by getting into a high profile twitter name or other account?

    Indeed, this is a marketing forum, not a hacking forum.

    I guess you knew about this in April 2012 and decided to wait until now to ask us?
