Twelve Russian Intelligence Officers Charged Over US Election Hacking[1]

Eleven Year-Old Hacked Into a U.S. Voting System Replica in 10 Minutes[2]

Ten Airports Where You’re Likely To Get Hacked[3]

Ninety Thousand Canadian Bank Customers Hacked[4]

(one) Eight Hundred 1-800 Flowers Breached[5] (but only in Canada)

Seven Russian Intelligence Officers Charged With Hacking 40 Sports[6]

$$$$$ $ix Hundred Thousand Paid for $extortion [7]

Five Hundred Million Marriott Customers hacked[8]

Four Filthy Hacking Nations [9]

Three G 3G Jeep Entertainment Center Hack[10]  and

Three Ukrainians arrested for hacking over 100 US companies[11] (extra credit)
