Is Big Brother needed to police the web?
Well I read the following article with some trepidation. We all know that pretty much all bot armies are made up of users who are not computer savvy. That said, do we need the government to step in and start mandating change? I for one would think no, not at all. Well who then? Is it the ISP’s fault? Well, I would say partially yes. In reality the blame rests completely upon the home user who has not paid that much attention to computer security. Not even in its most basic form ie: a f/w and a/v solution. About all we can really hope for is that all computers are sold with a package of f/w and a/v, which most are nowadays. All roads seemingly then lead to the apathetic home user who pays a lot more attention to their wallet then their computer. As we all know they are pretty much one and the same nowadays with home based banking and the such. Bottom line is, there is no easy solution to this problem.
