Immigration and Customs Enforcement made one of its biggest online crackdowns in history. Federal authorities took down over 300 domain names for illegally streaming NFL games and selling counterfeit sports paraphernalia. Nearly $5 million in fake NFL merchandise was seized. In other news, after an investigation into a filing with the SEC, VeriSign admitted that it was hacked multiple times in 2010. This is particularly troubling because at the time, VeriSign was the primary authority for issuing websites security certificates. The extent of the damage is still being looked into. And finally, Google introduced new security measures to prevent users from downloading viruses through the Android Market. A new service will automatically scan the market and continuously remove apps that try to compromise your phone. Unless you’re downloading apps from third-party sites, don’t worry about your phone getting a virus.
