Hacking

Well well well, it seems our good old traditional media are running a story with some pretty badly reported facts. With visuals of police forces raiding a house with guns blazing its all very dramatic. If you take two big headline topics NBN and Hacking, and combine them in one story, your bound to get great ratings right.. never let the truth get in the way of a good story.

This afternoon police to arrest a 25 year old man from Cowra in Central NSW on 49 hacking charges, but the reports that NBN was compromised seem to be incorrect. In a tweet from NBNCo on twitter, they say:

We were not hacked, compromised or affected. The company said to have been involved has not yet connected services over the NBN
