Chasing A Hacker's Hacks Around The World

As details trickle out about how the feds supposedly broke the Gonzalez attacks against TJX, Hannaford, Heartland, 7-Eleven and tons of others, much of it focuses on a global effort to access servers and laptops overseas and doing so in countries where U.S. law enforcement cooperation is perhaps not what it should be.

Wired did a wonderful piece, summarizing federal filings in the New York part of the Gonzalez accusations (this is the Dave & Buster's case). The story details the chase for a laptop in Turkey and the legal and police bumps along the way. Nothing new revealed for retailers trying to protect their networks, but it's interesting background nonetheless.
