eWeek has published an interesting article about cyber crime.
“Based on all the evidence gathered over the last two years, Dunham is convinced that groups of well-organized mobsters have taken control of a global billion-dollar crime network powered by skillful hackers and money mules targeting known software security weaknesses.”
“If you become a known hacker and you start to cut into their profits, they’ll come to your house, take you away and beat you to a pulp until you back off or join them. There have been documented cases of this,” Dunham said.
Apparently there’s no honor among thieves on the Internet.
