Microsoft, along with the FBI and American Bankers Association, are trying to kill off Internet fraud through the Internet Fraud Alert. The program helps companies know when they've been compromised -- before they would have found out themselves.
Fraud Alert looks for cases where accounts, passwords, card numbers, etc. have been stolen and alerts the victims ASAP.
While I love this kind of thing, I prefer more forensic work so hackers can be hunted down, busted and tossed in the cooler.
What are your thoughts? Are hackers just misunderstood and deserve our comfort or our worst retribution? You tell me at [email protected]
