    Lady Gaga was the victim of a cyber crime yesterday as her Twitter account was hacked. Gaga has 17 million followers and she posted a tweet in the late morning about offering a free iPad2 to her followers to celebrate the holiday season. The link inside the tweet lead to a potentially malicious website. Hope you didn't click it, since it was obviously a fake. However, word is that at least 7,000 of her followers clicked on the link, as it was bit.ly and those are tracked.

    What do you think is the best and most fair punishment for a cyber crime such as this?
