High End Cyber Crime

PBS's NewsHour had an interesting article about "cyber crime." Stateing that "The FBI has now ranked cyber crime as the third-greatest threat to U.S. national security, after nuclear war and weapons of mass destruction." Which mean's (I guess) that if we don't get blown up or--uh. . .destroyed en mass, we only have to worry about people hacking into our computers and stealing the plans for weapons of surgical precision, stealing our money, and stealing our identities. Check out the story HERE.
Also check out the audio interview on the "Russian cyber gang," from tonight's show HERE. Don't miss the side comment about the Iraqi buying "off the shelf software" and hacking into UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicle).

Welcome to the Cyberpunk Apocalypse.
