We're From the Government and We're Here to Remind You to Change Your Underwear
That's what it will come to, between the nannies and the NSA:
It's not surprising to learn that various governments (not just the United States) account for the bulk of online mischief, but it's a bit sobering to see the numbers laid out by a new Verizon investigative report, summarized by the UK Telegraph: there has been a 300 percent increase in cyber espionage since last year's report, and government agents are responsible for 87 percent of it. (11 percent came from organized criminals, which I suppose leaves two percent traceable to random jackasses.)
The overwhelming amount of the time, the government is the bad guy. Most of the rest is the Mob. So can Hollywood please for once make a movie where something other than a giant corporation is the bad guy?
