The feds follow up last week's Hydra bust with a takedown of RaidForums. Some hospital robots get a thorough checkup. And what's with the puppy fraud? This is CyberScoop for April 21.

RaidForums, raided

The latest cybercrime sting by U.S. law enforcement is the seizure of RaidForums, a website that boasted at one point of having close to 10 billion pieces of personally identifiable information for sale.
