whoops - sorry Chris
Evidently I owe Chris Boyd an apology.
Here's what happened. About a week ago, our prevalence network, independently of any other input, detected the Alicia Keys MySpace hack, because of the link to the fake codec, and we started trying to make a video about it.
I recalled Alex Eckelberry making a post about a couple of different MySpace hacks over the last week or so, and in fact credited them as we made the video. When I checked with Alex to find a blog to link to, he told me it was Chris and not his guys. It was too late to change the vid, but I intended to mention it in the blog, and simply forgot.
To be fair to Chris, he was first, although when I looked at the link Alex gave me, it mentioned the Passarounders, and when I found Alex's original message, it mentioned a band called greementsoffortune ... not Alicia Keys, which was much bigger news to me. It was the same Bad Guys, but, truly, _we found it independently_.
So Chris... I apologize ... I didn't steal any of your work, and didn't mean to steal your thunder.
Everyone knows you do good work, and I clearly owe you at least one beer sometime.
