But every so often, a new type of hacker comes along. He secretly burrows his way into your hard drive, then into your life. It was a Saturday night, not much happening in her Long Beach, California, neighborhood, so high school senior Melissa Young was home messing around on her computer.
Her little sister, Suzy, was doing the same thing down the hall.
But with no sign of trouble on their machines—no slow performance, no deleted files, no alerts from antivirus programs—they pretty much forgot about it. Suzy, Melissa, and Nila went about their lives online and off.

But people were laughing and thinking, ‘Wow — good for her.’”As for the idea that fans of lilsecrett may have a fetish for libraries, Rexer rolled her eyes.
