In the early morning hours of October 21st, 2014, Partap Davis lost $3,000. He had gone to sleep just after 2AM. While he slept, an attacker undid every online security protection he set up.

This is one of the most interesting pieces I read on The Verge for two reasons:
- This story remind me of what happened to Naoki Hiroshima aka @N.
- The design of the page is really great, the effect on the Headings and the Featured Image, along with the table of content, all contribute to a great reading experience.
If you didn’t read this story yet, I encourage you to do so.
