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!!

re: Silk Road Founder Arrested
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!

Incorporating a Prevention Mindset into Threat Detection and Response
Threat detection and response systems, by definition, are reactive because they have to wait for damage to be done before finding the attack. With a prevention-mindset, security teams can proactively anticipate the attacker's next move, rather than reacting to specific threats or trying to detect the latest techniques in real-time. The report covers areas enterprises should focus on: What positive response looks like. Improving security hygiene. Combining preventive actions with red team efforts.
