real condensed version of my ideas...
Most real vulnerabilities and their discoveries occur the wild... obviously
some on machines not belonging to the creditor / discoverer. Often you
say... what do I do with this info? If I report it i may be arrested? If I
dont someone with evil intentions may and will. Jurisdiction is so enormous
in scope to define any punishable offence. The world in general needs to
accecpt that internet parcipation is on a voluntary basis, and carries such
risks of a "open market". It is quite unfortunate that profits were to be
made and maintained as a business structure long before there were ANY
accecpted standards of ANYTHING. I think the best possible comparison to the
real world is that of vintage aircraft and autos. Both are generally allowed
to continue thier operation without modern safegaurds, despite the dangers
of operating them in and around thier more modern counterparts. Given log
data to a court or jury of two breakin / attack / compromise scenarios,
both orriginating from the same physical locale, can be very different
depending on techniques used, but yet one is punishable by the evidence and
one is not, although both were exactly the same.. this does not do for a
real world jail sentence.
Until these issues are either accecpted or resolved... you cannot have
punishible internet laws. If internet crime manefests itself into a
physical crime or a crime where a person or companys assests were physically
transfered and recieved and / or are of an officaly established
international monetary systems and infrastructure, then it is handled
acordingly . Crimes of this nature are already provided for in all major
countries as it is, as they have always been punishible since nearly the
time they have existed. Untill I can physically implode your CRT in your
face or pop open a cdtray with hot coffee in front of it and it spills and
burns you, I cannot see how there can be any definable standard for
punishible electronic crime at all.
