The Silk Road: The Rise and Fall of the World's Largest Online Black Market
428Mach1at July 24,2015 A brief but informative warning. One point that was not mentioned; the personal and portable devices that were demonstrated to be hackable were probably not secured with encryption, passwords or a mobile management and security system. The use of drones was interesting and amusing. I had not forseen the use of drones to more efficiently "harvest" unsecured mobile devices` data. But where there`s a will ....and available new technology, the industrious criminal will adapt that technology for new ways of making victims of the unsuspecting. Oh, I am not surprised that law enforcement is reprioritizing - cybercrime seems to be ubiquitous.
hhoang5at September 24,2015 The video shows how the booming industry of cybercrimes: people do not need to know how to hack; cybercriminals can now be easily hired online. The potential for cyberattacks on wearables and internet-connected devices such as drones is also alarming. While it is good that law enforcement realizes the increasing level of threat from cybercrimes, one concern remains: will they evolve fast enough to catch up with cybercriminals?
Beggsseat September 24,2015 This was an encouraging video with regards to the future efforts of law enforcement and the priority that cyber threats will have above terrorism. After watching "Everyday Cybercrime and What You Can Do About It" which highlighted the challenges of jurisdictional issues for cyber crimes, which are borderless and international, this provided a welcome message of priority. Very eye-opening to think about the hacking potential with drones and ultimately anything that has a computer functioning as the brain of the system.
sagarwa9at October 04,2015 Cyber crime will definitely be on top of threats list. The more we rely on technology the more vulnerable we make ourselves to cyber attacks.
sliu23at October 07,2015 It is said that FBI could use drones to surveillance suspects and even hack in the target’s mobile phone long ago, which means drone-based hacking is possible. Nowadays, drones become cheaper and easier to be obtained, and wireless devices is ubiquitous throughout our daily life, such as PDA, cellphone, watch and etc. All of these offer the convenience and motivation for normal hackers to overcome technical difficulty of using drone as the hack platform. And using drone as the hack platform would also make criminals detecting and locating harder than old times. Because the “attacker drone” could keep moving during hacking procedure. Even the drone was captured, attacker still could have enough time to leave or destroy evidence. I think the drone-based hacking would be a tendency of future cyber-crime.
