Verizon is indeed going to acquire EdgeCast Networks, a content delivery network founded in 2008 that has grown to be one of the fastest-growing Internet companies in the world. TechCrunch’s Ryan Lawler reported the deal was in the works on Sunday, and a new press release from Verizon confirms it, with a projected finalization date sometime in early 2014.

Hacks occur every 39 seconds, with 95% of them targeting governments, retailers and the tech industry. If the hackers are caught, they'll face prison time under the Computer Misuse Act.
