That Internet. It's Dangerous

from the don't-go-out-after-dark dept

At a “town hall meeting” on cybersecurity it seemed that panelists were pushing each other over to explain just how dangerous the internet is. Obviously, there are a ton of security issues to be dealt with online, but these panels seem to be designed simply to make people fearful, and make for less controversy when the FBI’s new cybercrime unit starts logging everything you do online. Instead of just complaining about security issues (as each of the quotes in the first articles seems to do) they should be helping to find solutions to security problems.
