Digital resistance

Hacking has become a major 21st century problem thanks to the amount of personal data that now resides on the Internet. And this problem has become a major problem for just about everyone, we are all susceptible to it. When your hacked, if your lucky enough to get hacked it can be the most irritating thing. This happened to me back in probably 2007 when my yahoo7 email was hacked. While personal information being taken is a scary thought, it also highlights no matter how secure the network may be, when it comes the ‘big wide web’ your privacy will never be protected. Everything is traceable. Julian Assange made this all too real. The founder of wikileaks essentially a whistleblowing website, gained mass attention when he published large datasets of censored or otherwise restricted official materials involving war, spying and corruption. The site has since published more than 10 million documents and associated analyses. Despite whether you think what Assange did was ethical or not, it is very naïve to think that he is the only one uncovering unauthorized information as we speak.
