UK losing internet crime battle
While UK Prime Minister David "tough on masturbation, tough on the causes of masturbation" Cameron is trying to rustle up support for his internet porn filter, it appears that cyber crime levels are going through the roof.
Cameron wants people's attention to focus on purging the internet from anything he does not like, while at the same time ignoring a very real cyber threat.
The Home Affairs Committee, which scrutinises the government's domestic policy, called for the government to set up a "state-of-the-art espionage response team" to encourage companies, banks and institutions to report hacking attempts to uncover the full extent of online crime.
According to Reuters, the Committee said it was concerned that there appears to be a 'black hole' where low-level e-crime is committed with impunity.
Cyber crime policing needed to be merged into a new unified structure as part of a shakeup of the country's policing structure, but the report added this was just the first stage to tackle a very real problem.
Cameron's answer is to tighten up online pornography laws and demanded that internet firms block access to child abuse images. Of course that is not going to stop cyber crime but will help some tabloids gloat about their campaign victories.
The Committee said the government is still too complacent about cybercrime, ranging from identity fraud and data theft to the spreading of illegal images and extremist material.
