Although I enjoy the comments and the expected rhetoric from this thread, there is an important trend that should be emphasized: This is, and should be called 'State Sponsored Espionage' - The FBI and other government organizations have been directed to do something about a new threat. Land, Sea, Air, and now Net, are areas of major concern.
Secondly, if you talk to your local FBI agent that is associated with cyber crime, a huge percentage of their time is spent on.. Hunting down pedophiles.
Since the chess game is in motion, I would prefer my tax dollars being spent on Knight, Queen, and Rook moves, rather than they day-to-day pawn moves. Strategically we need to be adjusting to this new defense model. (ref. Black Hat 2010 Keynote from retired general)
