    I was shocked to find out about the "cyber crime" happening in countries in the east, and how countries in the west can't really do anything to catch these criminals.

    Yep. Stories about Mafia hijacking bandwidth to blackmail companies, eastern bloc countries where high flying students used to hack banks or their families get beaten up etc etc.

    All that's without the routine "hackers and crackers" plus all the nasty paedo stuff.

    As Mr Gibson said at the end "you really don't want to be in my world" - scary stuff :ohmy
