It seemed that almost every day last year we heard of yet another new attack of security vulnerability in an operating system or popular application. Much of this news came by way of white hat hackers who found and explained how to prevent attacks. And eWeek explain who they think are the five most noteworthy hackers of last year in terms of discoveries and disclosures.
Two cheers for vulnerability researchers! Without them, who knows how long it would take for some developers to patch and plug holes in their code.
