Journal bennett000's Journal: Online crime, and online "crime"

After two months of what can only be described as aggressive e-vandalism, serious arrests are finally being made by various authorities. Opinions on the subject are intense and polarized, this journal entry is not concerned with that debate; the concern is the definitively calculable online crime that is also going on, and how it is being pursued/reported by the authorities/press.

Online crime seems to have fallen in quantity but also increased in quality. In the late nineteen nineties it used to be that malware just slowed your computer down. Now it secretly owns and defends your computer, and in the case of stuxnet, controls nuclear reactors.
