re: FBI Director: ID And Deter Attackers 'Behind The Keyboards'




It is funny how quick
one will turn when faced when jail time. I think that SabuGs biggest contributions
to the Feds were not the people he rolled on, but exposing the unknown
vulnerabilities, and eliminating those threats. I like how it was pointed out
that it is individuals and not computers that are responsible for these
attacks. I believe that people associate computers with threats and vulnerabilities,
although responsible for some security flaws, it is the intent of a individual behind
the attacks. I understand that the Feds are responsible for arresting these
hackers, but it would have been nice to know they caught them through forensics
and not handed to them. That would have given me confidence in our defense,
actually catching them by detecting and investigating then tracing these attacks
to the individuals.
