[ars] Have you seen these “cyber” fugitives? FBI offers up to $100,000 bounty - Page 2

post #11 of 19
And this is why I am STILL surprised there is no such thing as internet-justice. How is it that we have SO many criminals that continue to forge their way on the internet undetected? It's been SO long since the internet was first conceptualized, and now it seems as if it ONLY benefits the criminals who abuse its privacy.

This may or may not be on topic, but I still feel that this needs to be addressed very quickly. I'm not some internet martyr who will go on some crusade to fix it, but I would if I had the means to. I am quite shocked that for so long companies and the likes have had the means to fix these issues, but were probably paid off.

Security on the internet is a huge thing, and if we can't get our stuff together, then I wouldn't have a problem with forgetting about the internet altogether. Life on the computer was better when games came equipped to play on LAN. Now we have this funny business with trojans and people masquerading on the internet with hacks in video games, and it still seems as if nothing will ever be done to fix it.

I bet you companies like Punkbuster have lost almost all intuition to finish their job because no one wants to help. This is along the same lines and cyber-fugitives. We can't help if we don't know how, even if we want to.

Security is a big deal on the Internet. We must respect the privacy of all who are using it. Individual or state intrusion of privacy must be stopped as many constitutions of countries demand it.

Cheating in games and cyber security are whole difernt bottles of fish, One of the Biggestest issues with NetSec is borders, i belive its brazil which has stupidly lax computer laws. Say they break into you computer, whos laws are applied? The victim (whos computer may be in yet another country), the attacker, or any country which the connection has bounced though.

Though it's not an excuse to stop trying, there are not nearly enough people that get this point. Too many moving parts, but people try to make it sound black and white when the reality is it's much more difficult...

I wonder how many other people are going to read this thread, and, irrationally, worry that they may very well be e-wanted.

And, compared to that, I wonder how many people will, rationally, worry that they may be e-wanted.

Heh heh heh.

I do wonder how many people on this site are FBI employees lol. I've been to the field office in Jacksonville FL and I was surprised at how young the people were who worked in the cyber division. The SAIC (boss) is an uber ***** though.

What I mean to say even though cyber-fugitives and video game cheaters are a totally different bag, it equates to the same thing. We have people walking all over us as video gamers and people trying to make a decent living. Video game cheaters nowadays are amongst the same crop of of personality types, however. They don't care about the rules, easily break them, then get away scotch free because we have no control of being able to stop them from "terrorizing" decent folk.
