Internet gangs hire students for cybercrime

By Reuters

Organized gangs have adopted “KGB-style” tactics to hire high-flying computer students to commit Internet crime, a report said on Friday.

Criminals are targeting universities, computer clubs and online forums to find undergraduates, according to Internet security firm McAfee.

Some gangs have sponsored promising students from other disciplines to attend computer courses before planting them in businesses as “sleepers.”

McAfee said the students write computer viruses, commit identity theft and launder money in a multibillion-dollar industry that is more lucrative than the drug trade.

OSA Editorial Comments:

Great story and information, it’s time to say: “enough is enough” or scream out from the rooftops that We as an Internet family have to band together and force politicians, the Federal Government, and International leaders to make changes in how we treat Cyber Criminals.
