This topic couldn't be concluded without a bit about hacker arrests and convictions:
- Six italian boys defaced websites during G8 meetings. The CEO said this about the incident: "Ironically they used global internet to accomplish this"
- The 14 italian hackers that damaged NASA, US Army and Navy systems are facing 8 years in prison. Some of these hackers were security consultants
- The punishment for virus authors should be bigger. For example, the Kournikova virus author got only 150 hours of social work. The CEO said ironically: "His mother made him go to bed early for couple of days" :)
