Comment: Why is the DMV kowtowing to a commercial business? (Score 3, Insightful) 202

Why is the DMV kowtowing to a commercial business? If this was in my state i would be raising hell. Sorry, i am not in uber corner here. Name some or any business that doesn't require a License when dealing with the public. I cant think of any, be it a plumber to an insurance salesperson. Uber is no different, we don't need MORE corporations getting out of paying there fair-share in taxes,fees. umber doesn't need loopholes in car repairs and proof of commercial passenger service insurance. Im betting the Auto insurance industry would have some hefty insurance premiums to those they find out are using there personal non commercial cars for commercial passenger service vehicles.

I say ISP because they have the technology, the tools, the money, the time, as apposed to say me who don't have the knowledge,money, time. They will save billions if they clean up the abusers and unsuspecting victims. 200,000,00 drone PCs use alot of bandwidth that's will be a direct savings to all ISPs so ya don't have to worry your stock will remain high as well as your profits. Everyone will win.

Really? They had 90 days to fix this. That is plenty of time.

Really? says who? YOU? Anonymous coward says so?

I just thinking out loud here but if everyones PC gets infected by someone using the knowledge given by this asshole, everyone who gets exploited and has there credit card exploited or there debit cards exploited PC exploited should sue Google. Its not thee right to make Windows/any OS users open to scum criminal hackers. IMO this is nothing more then criminal blackmail. they cant beat MS with an open market so they help hackers take them down.

My Ideas to help stop this kinda attack.

Identify as many infected computers as they can and block each and every one of the PCs,cellphone,servers whatever at the ISP level. We all cry we want an open internet but that is impossible if people are allowed to run infected PCs for theses scum criminals to use at will. No more blame game no more OS wars. PC owners have to be more responsible, no PC should be connected to the internet without a firewall and antivirus/malware software period end of story. I sure as hell would want to know if my PC is being used without my knowledge and im betting a few billion of my internet friends think the same as i do. Funny they don't bat an eye to spy on us, to collect all the data they can dig up to make mint for advertising. they know damn well whose PCs are infected and being used as bots.

Comon man what do you expect people to say to you? You live a sheltered life? are you 10 years old? Why would you not know its against the law to do network attacks? Or its ok because its a corporation you don't like? Hell they could be using YOUR or one of your family members PC to help in the attack.

So, in your thinking, a shoplifter being arrested is an action to protect the corporation that 1 makes the item, and 2 the corporation selling the item. Not one of enforcing the law? lol com on man......and if you block customers from entering any place of business you will get arrested. And if you decide to play superman and say nope your not arresting me,they will use whatever force necessary to arrest you.So you had better be in shape and be able to hold your breath for longer then 10 seconds. what makes you think otherwise?

And Sony, MS might have a civil case as well as the criminal but like you im no lawyer so time will tell.
