Hackers of the Lost Ark
Network and Computer Security NewsAnonymous writes ""Counter Hack" author Ed Skoudis presents HACKERS OF THE LOST ARK, another of his popular Crack-the-Hacker challenges. Going along with Ed's usual flair of adventurous back-story (this one no doubt inspired by the 1981 blockbuster "Raiders of the Lost Ark") we learn that just after archeologist Indiana Jones had retrieved the all powerful Ark of the Covenant from the Nazis, it was secretly stored away in a giant warehouse by the United States Government, never to be found again... That is until of course, a group of evil Neo-Nazis hacks into the Government's prototype server holding sensitive information of the Ark's exact location...and suddenly a whole new adventure begins and your forensics skills are beckoned! Ed himself is offering prizes to the top three sleuths. The challenge runs until July 2nd "

Americas Most Wanted
Reviews and InformationAnonymous writes "AMERICA’S MOST WANTED STEPMOTHER is Exposed in New Book NO GREATER DECEPTION A True Texas Story by Sydney Newman Dotson

Author and Former IBM Director of Corporate Business Intelligence Recounts How She Was Tested Personally and Used Professional Investigative Skills to Write this book. HOMELAND SECURITY Takes on a New Meaning with New Book NO GREATER DECEPTION A True Texas Story. IDENTITY THEFT Inside the Home Places Family Assets and Securities at Risk when a Dispute over a Suspicious Will leads to a Showdown in Texas. Author Sydney Newman Dotson tells all in new book.


Evil Stepmother's IDENTITY THEFT Scams and Tools of the Trade are exposed. Body Language, Motive and Illegal Actions point to one Woman in this fantastic Who Done It Mystery. What was she thinking? Her plot and motives are obvious. Money, money, money. But how many people did she hurt along the way? Did she really think she could pull this off without doing Time in Prison? Was it worth the Risk?

A Probate Case of a Forged Last Will and Testament exposes Stepmother's ability to establish a second signature for her husband, and forge multiple documents to gain family securities and investments. It's a grand attempt to disinherit the husband's six children and get rich at their expense. It contains the best of the movie CATCH ME IF YOU CAN and the Anna Nicole Smith Trial in one book.

"It's a real life Texas Soap Opera of Love, Death, Betrayal and Justice. Move over Dallas, here comes Houston!" says Liz Carpenter, Author and Lady Bird Johnson WHITE HOUSE Press Secretary.

"Hold onto your bootstraps! If you liked Erin Brockovich, you'll be thoroughly intrigued with the adventures of these two sisters, their knack for investigative work, and their family in Texas. The author will take you on a gut-wrenching roller coaster ride that occurs after her father dies and her stepmother produces a suspicious Last Will and Testament that leaves the stepmother the entire estate. What Sydney discovers makes her question everything she once thought was real.

Was it normal for Joe Bonanno and other well-known gangsters to visit her home? How involved was her father in the gambling and prostitution rings along the Galveston Bay? Were his connections to George Bush, Lyndon Johnson and Joe Bonanno much deeper than they seemed? Was he truly involved in the JFK assassination?

What she learns about her stepmother Betty is devastating. How did the town whore come to marry her father the Police Chief? Did she kill her only brother and forge her own father's Will too? Just how many accomplices does she have? Are some of them Sydney's own brothers and sister? What the forensic document expert discovers will send chills up and down your spine.

Sydney has 20 years corporate strategy, sales and marketing experience with EDS, IBM and Compaq. As IBM's first Director of Corporate Business Intelligence, Sydney created IBM's Global Business Intelligence Network, Global Market View and Field Intelligence Posse. The new programs she brought to IBM were utilized to measure corporate performance and provide competitive benchmarking to support IBM's Board of Directors and Worldwide Executive Council.

Sydney's family has been blessed with a long line of sheriffs, judges and military officers including General George Armstrong Custer. This strong ethical upbringing inspired her to write this book.
