Krebs, Hypponen _Not_ Arrested

I came across this story on Fraud News about Brian Krebs’ recent arrest, and wondered about its credibility.  Brian Krebs and Mikko Hyppönen have been great sources of information and research in the past, and this news story is pure fiction.  Check out the response on F-Secure’s website.

I did not detect any malware at the Fraud News site, but with a story like that posted without verifying the intell, I won’t place a link to it.

Details of the story can be found at the link above, along with the response.  I hope someone takes a beat-down…
