Ars Technica on counter hacking

How Georgia doxed a Russian hacker (and why it matters) | Ars Technica:

'via Blog this'

Ars Technica has an article up on how Georgia's national information security team may have counter-hacked a Russian state hacker, who had had been altering online news articles in the Georgian media. As the Technica journalist acknowledges in the article, verifying the truth in international hacking incidences is nigh impossible. That said, the Georgian response of name 'n shame, along with publishing a detailed account of the technical means employed by both the hacker and the security services involved, is now becoming a common response model.  One that Google and other internet savvy firms have used in response to hacks that appear to have originated in China.
