Conde Nast acknowledged the existence of the Internet last Thursday when it filed a lawsuit against an unknown hacker that downloaded thousands of magazine files from their system back in September. In November, much of the content from then-upcoming December issues of GQ, Vogue, Teen Vogue and Lucky turned up on a practically unknown blog, FashionZag. Although it's unclear if Conde Nast is accusing the blog owner of being the hacker, we're not entirely sure what's the point either way, other than Conde Nast needs a more secure network. [WWD]
