Cybercrime Is Getting Organized

Cybercrime Is Getting Organized - Reuters

"Cyberscams are increasingly being committed by organized crime syndicates out to profit from sophisticated ruses rather than hackers keen to make an online name for themselves, according to a top U.S. official.

Christopher Painter, deputy chief of the computer crimes and intellectual property section at the Department of Justice, said there had been a distinct shift in recent years in the type of cybercriminals that online detectives now encounter.

"There has been a change in the people who attack computer networks, away from the 'bragging hacker' toward those driven by monetary motives," Painter told Reuters in an interview this week."

This is a very interesting post whilst not directly about Oracle and Oracle security it says something about how the protection of data should be becoming much more important for any company that stores data in databases.
