A Romanian court has sentenced the hacker known as “Guccifer” to four years in jail. He’s the guy who hacked into George W. Bush’s personal email account and posted the former president’s paintings on the internet. Meanwhile, a new study says that cybercrime could be costing the global economy $400 billion. And another group claims that a Chinese military unit has been attacking Western government agencies and defense contractors.
