MacBook hijack story prompts criticism

hacking a macbookYesterday Washingtonpost.com posted a video of a couple of hackers allegedly launching a security attack against a MacBook. The video and the accompanying story by reporter Brian Krebs received tons of criticism from commenters. That prompted Krebs to post a follow-up defending his reporting -- which prompted even more criticism. I don't pretend to be a hardware or security expert, so I can't tell you whether the video is a fake or not. What I do find interesting is how the blogosphere policed this "story," proving once again that you can't get away with much out here.
