Re: I can't understand all these stuff
@REISEN: Not to mention the fact that (as I understand it), you can't get certain jobs with the federal government or particular security clearances if you've pirated software or music -- and they do polygraph on that stuff. (Not that polygraphs are 100% reliable, but still.)

Internal threats
It's not just students et al. visiting bad-reputation sites. A lot of cryptomining activity on campuses occurs with a faculty member, student, or other staffer leveraging the university's HPC capabilities to mine Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. We've seen some headlines about this. Excellent way to get into trouble.

Re: I can't understand all these stuff
College is a good hunting ground for this background activity as kids know nothing about the REAL world out there, think that internet cafe(s) are really fun and neat and just do not take security seriously.  When you are 20 years old, death is not an option nor a mortgage nor life responsibility.  I knew nothing about that when I was 20.  So they run loose and wild and don't know any better.
