I actually didn't blog in May between grading finals and getting ready for several firsts at UAB, including our first Computer Foreniscs Camp for high schoolers, and our first National Science Foundation Research Experiences for Undergraduates in Cybercrime Investigations.
(Note: We are already taking applications for the UAB Crime REU which has three tracks, Criminal Justice, Forensic Science, and Computer Forensics. If you know an undergrad with a passion for Cybercrime investigation who would like to earn $450 per week, plus room and board, have them follow that link for an application!)
So, instead of giving you a CyberCrime & Doing Time story, let's look at MY favorite Security Blog, Krebs On Security.com.
My top story in May was probably the Fraud Bazaar Carders.cc Hacked.
