The Silk Road: The Rise and Fall of the World's Largest Online Black Market
Emmereetat July 03,2015 Yet again, a video to confirm that every little piece of technology we use either for fun or for convenience can be accessed by someone who is up for no good to victimize us. Wow!
tlawlessat July 04,2015 This news story hints at what folks in the computer science, electronics, and security industries have all known was going to come. The ability for individuals to easily get access to tools and knowledge that will enable them to exploit poorly secured technology is indeed a turning point in our society. While some folks will naturally lean towards "dumb" technology the real long term solution will only be achieved by getting aggressive both technically and legally to protect consumers and expose the individuals and organizations behind these acts.
achanthaat July 10,2015 I agree with @tlawless. I think it's extremely important for law enforcement to become more aggressive technically and legally to protect consumers. A lot of time and resources will need to be invested in ensuring that consumers are protected however, it will be worth it in the end.
mrgodfrey3at July 14,2015 I agree with @achantha. It is critical for the authorities shift to an aggressive approach in order to stop these types of activities who are harming consumers and the public. It is just a matter of how much the pubic and governments are willing to put up with before taking meaningful action. Cost vs benefits.
logybombat July 16,2015 More reasons to be mindful of your personal identifiable information. I really think schools should start teaching data awareness along with science, history, and math. The key to being able to adapt to different threats is to be informed and aware of what can happen. The people in the video who got data pulled off their cellphones, probably had no idea that this was happening. Understanding that the need for data security is going to be vital for people and companies alike going forward into the future.
