Quotation of the Day for December 17, 2009
"Think about it in the context of the Mexican drug problem. A couple of years ago, Mexico didn't have much of a problem because all of the drugs were going north and Mexico was just a conduit. Now, their whole police structure is compromised. They're bringing in the army. They're staging gun battles in the streets with drug gangs. They just allowed it to go on too long. And that's a worry that many of us have [about cybercrime]. The problem is that you're institutionalizing it and allowing a criminal element to get established. How far away might we be from a criminal group extorting a government for money? Who would be responsible for responding? It's not a military problem."
- Eugene Spafford, of Purdue University's CERIAS centre, in an interview on cybercrime.
