CyberWire Dispatch Correction

In the Dispatch, "Unamailer Strikes on Christmas Eve," the National Computer Security Association should have been referenced, not the Computer Emergency Response Team. The SYN-flood attack on WebCom brought the system down two separate times for 10 hours and 40 hours, not for a full week. It was Internet World that misidentified "se7en" as the Unamailer "johnny xchaotic," not Internet Underground as originally reported.
