Between residual eggnog rounds and gift-gloat with family this evening, I plan to tune in to the debut of "Tiger Team," a new series on Court TV which is, more or less, about hacking:
This vérité action series follows Tiger Team – a group of elite professionals hired to infiltrate major business and corporate interests with the objective of exposing weaknesses in the world’s most sophisticated security systems, defeating criminals at their own game.
