something needs to be done
Spam, identity theft, online crimes of all kinds seem to invade our lives at all turns. I have always fought the intrusion of those that seek to control my life. But now one can't be sure who is doing the controlling. If I must curtail or stop my online life to thwart the kind of shit that is happening I will be extremely pissed off. I know that any lock can be picked. The solution in the past was to make the lock too time consuming for all but the best to make the attempt. It seems now that even a poor or mediocre hacker can get rewards. We need our computer scientists to focus on our cyber-safety before focusing on the next for profit application.
