stadkalat February 25,2016 stopping the cyber crimes is the most important task that has put in front any crime investigation departments through out the world. Training the officers and making them cyber investigators or by recruiting people with those skills in the departments is the best way to investigate.
nbaker3at March 02,2016 This push of cyber crime in the FBI and moving up the list of priorities really needed to be done along time ago, however it is better late than never. With the drone based hacks, this is not new news, and really calls for an update in security technology to be able to defend against this. While the government does have "no fly zones" a better software needs to be developed to protect against these kinds of attacks.
adamat March 11,2016 I want to know how that guy was pulling user names and passwords with that drone. They were painfully non-descript with regards to methods on this video. Was the guy reading WiFi information or was he able to snoop the cell phone communications? How can I defend against some jerk with a DJI phantom?
tcmahonyat March 25,2016 Clearly drones are going to be extremely huge going forward in terms of cyber crimes. Given that these types of "aircraft" are now being regulated by the government goes to show you the growing concern by law enforcement. These devices will most likely be able to target mobile technologies with wireless connectivity being the initial attack vector. In addition to just the cyber crime component they will also pose a threat to people's privacy. As some of these devices may be equipped with cameras they may be able to spy on people in ways not immediately thought of.
BrianDaugetteat March 27,2016 One thing that is enabling, and will continue to enable cybercrime is that the pace at which new technologies are pushed out to consumers is much faster than the rate at which consumers become security savvy with regards to the electronic devices and services they trust their data with. Mobile banking, Chat apps like snapchat, and social media sites all ask us to trust them with our personal data and private lives, but they are all fundamentally built on technologies that are hackable. As digital natives get older, this will probably become less of an issue, but right now, when so many people who didn't grow up on the Internet are adopting these technologies they will continue to be a ripe target for hackers and criminals.
