A European country, Germany, is in the final stage of passing a law that will constitute it illegal to create, own and use so-called “hacking tools”. It is said that they have tightened definitions “making denial of service attacks and attempts to sniff data on third-party wireless networks, for example, clearly criminal” as reported by The Register .
This is only made worse by the EU seeking to create their own European-wide policy against cyber-crime [2,3] and a country within the EU putting forward its own “anti-hacking” law will only pave the way.
We will try to keep it simple and understandable for those with PhDs and in high managing positions.
Man kind should stop going through loops in history.
– What they see as being different, they refuse to try to understand.
– What they don’t understand, they are automatically afraid of.
– What they are afraid of, poses a threat to them.
– What it is considered as posing a threat, they wipe out.
If you wonder what all this means, go back and think of the “Europeans” trying discover the rest of the world, and when they were seeing “different” kinds of people; they killed them because they could not understand them. These people were a threat to them, so wiped them out. I refer to Africans, the burning of “witches” in the middle-ages, and the example of Columbus when he discovered America and wiped out the locals.
In conclusion, people who cannot secure their systems, protect their digital assets and take the required action to prevent their systems from being hacked or know what to do if they do get hacked should go back to the University and actually attend the lectures and tutorials. Yes, accept that you will get hacked one day because it is impossible to achieve 100% security, however make sure you have the right person doing the right job for you.
Yes, by walking down the street you could be mugged anytime. Should we make a law that you could sue anyone (because you assumed his/her intentions) that would approach you?
The world is trying to evolve. It would be great if you could stop being afraid of things that are different and you are obsessed that they are posing a threat to you, because you do not have the appropriate personnel to deal with it.
