If someone said the word ‘hacker’ to you, would you think of the stereotypical image of a teenage nerd, tapping away at a keyboard, trying to brute force crack a password?
Well it is time to dispel that myth, and start including Sam Spade like characters in your imagination.
The BBC has a report on a private detective agency that has been caught red handed. They are accused of crimes ranging from ‘simple’ phone tapping to complicated data acquisition through illegal means.
The title the company gave this particular off shoot of their investigative branch? Hackers Are Us!
I should probably point out that the accused are all pleading NOT guilty…
