NSA: Cybercrime is 'the greatest transfer of wealth in history'

Quote:
At an American Enterprise Institute (AEI) event on Monday called "Cybersecurity and American power," U.S. Army Gen. Keith B. Alexander called cybercrime "the greatest transfer of wealth in history." The director of the National Security Agency (NSA) and chief at the Central Security Service (CSS) reemphasized an immense problem the U.S. is facing: intellectual property loss via cyber espionage.

"Hackers are often seen as pests, and a nuisance. When they band together, however, and especially when they are sponsored by a state, their potential power is huge. Bright minds in the U.S. are aware of this and regularly urge the government and private companies to take action. More resources can always be used to train cyber experts, build a defensive architecture, and increase situational awareness." -- from the link

Our hackers are good. We weaken or delay nuclear ambitions. Their hackers are bad. Evil. They steal our intellectual properties from which we collect license fees in perpetuity.

It cannot be mentioned enough how detrimental this piece of legislation would be.

Yep, more propanganda reminiscent of 1984 and Animal House by Orwell.

I thought this was going to be a scathing indictment of the banking industry, Wall Street, and corporate greed.

Greatest thing so far with 7
I have the realtek 7.1 surround sound chipset. On XP and Vista it was always a p.i.t.a to set up. Install driver, re install driver and hunt for the right checkmark to select. I installed 7 the other day and sound worked great right out of the box. :D
