Black-Hat Brazilian Hackers Commit Deforestation
Logging and charcoal companies in Brazil reportedly employed hackers to
alter computerized controls that determine how much timber can be logged
in areas of the Brazilian Amazon rainforest.  According to one estimate,
the attacks allowed an additional 1.7 million cubic meters of timber to
be exported before police became aware of the situation. Authorities in
Brazil are suing the companies for 2 billion reals (US $842 million).
