“Cybercriminals from Eastern Europe” – quote from CompTIA Security+ 2008, Chapter 1, Page 36
Oh, please… this is stupid !
It is true that many of the attacks are conducted from Eastern Europe, but this is not the way to publish something like this.
You are ruining their chances. There are many good guys and they are brilliant !
I have the pleasure to work with many such young people every day.
There is a new breed of computer attackers known as cybercriminals. Cybercriminals are a
loose-knit network of attackers, identity thieves, and financial fraudsters. These cybercriminals
are described as being more highly motivated, less risk-averse, better funded, and more
tenacious than hackers.
Many security experts believe that cybercriminals belong to organized gangs of young and
mostly Eastern European attackers. Reasons why this area may be responsible for the large
number of cybercriminals are summarized in Table 1-6.
Cybercriminals often meet in online “underground” forums that have names like
DarkMarket.org and theftservices.com. The purpose of these meetings is to trade information
and coordinate attacks around the world.
