I'm curious about whether Graham's speculation is correct. What if CBP was tipped off to the package by an intelligence gathering scheme of dubious legality?

I find it hilarious that this black market 'KingPin' was stupid enough to have Illegal identification sent FROM a foreign country TO his home address. Did he not realize the level of scrutiny packages going cross border undergo? Lol.

Not so bright after all!!

I find it fascinating that "authorities estimate that Silk Road generated over $1.2 billion (that's with a "B" folks) in sales and $80 million in commissions" and our government, the so-called "authorities" can't seem to generate enough to pay their own bills and resort to shutting down the government over egos and nonsense! What a world we live in!

While endpoint detection and response is not new to enterprise security, organizations have to improve network visibility, expand data collection and expand threat hunting capabilites if they want their XDR deployments to succeed. This issue of Tech Insights also includes: a market overview for XDR from Omdia, questions to ask before deploying XDR, and an XDR primer.
