Submission + - UK magazine pulled from US store after a feature on 'hacking' (tuxradar.com) 1

They used 'hack' in the populist security sense, rather than the traditional sense, and the feature — which they put online — was used to illustrate how poor your server's security is likely to be by breaking into it.
