An anonymous reader writes "A friend works as CIO at a medium sized publically traded company. The company was contacted by a hacking group and told to pay $100,000 to prevent their company from being hacked/attacked. They actually paid the extorsion (told authorities after). The authorities said the company could be charged with supporting Terrorists.
Seeing that most publiclly known hacks are costing companies this size nearly a million dollars.
Is this supporting terrorists or supporting stockholders?"
