Until the Brian Krebs movie hits the theaters, we'll have to make do with the arrest of a Ukrainian man suspected of being behind a plot to frame the award-winning security journalist for dealing heroin.
Krebs' exploits scarcely need to be scripted; they're already Hollywood popcorn-crunching seat-of-your pants, as you can glean from New York Times reporter Nicole Perlroth's February 2014 profile:
A $12.7 million supercomputer owned by Niwa has been targeted by a computer hacker believed to have come from China.
The computer, known as FitzRoy, is housed in a specially constructed room at the National Institute for Water and Atmospheric Research base at Greta Point, Wellington.
An infamous computer hacker has been arrested in Thailand at the request of Switzerland on suspicion of hacking into bank computer systems in Europe, an official said Tuesday.
Farid Essebar, who has dual Moroccan-Russian nationality, was detained in Bangkok last week, according to Police Colonel Songsak Raksaksakul of the Department of Special Investigation, Thailand's equivalent of the FBI.
The dramatic increase in the number of security attacks and the sophistication of the cyber criminals masterminding them means there is a critical need for businesses to take a more radical approach to their information security.

A Slovenian court on Monday sentenced to 58 months in jail Matjaz Skorjanc, the creator of the "Mariposa Botnet", a vast network of virus-infected computers used by criminal hackers.
Skorjanc was found guilty of "creating a malicious computer programme for hacking information systems, assisting in wrongdoings and money laundering", the Maribor regional court said.
