    Hopefully they catch the perps and make their new home at the Iron Bar Hotel for 10 years or so plus treble damages.

      TheDetroitBureau.com was hacked…along with 10,000 other WordPress-based sites…three years ago. It was a nightmare…a very costly nightmare. I briefly re-thought my opposition to the death penalty.

    Many people ignorantly view hacking as a victimless crime and do not begin to understand the costs and consequences. The UK is a perfect example of clueless politicans pandering to hackers and their judicial system giving hackers a slap on the wrist. Until all countries take cyber crime seriously and punish those who violate law with a strong penalty to discourage these crimes, they will continue unabated.

      Actually, there are a fair number of folks who view hackers heroically, the book Neuromancer certainly playing to that mindset. It becomes a very different story when you’re targeted — as we were on TheDetroitBureau.com.
