Computer Crimes: First Quarter

David E. Kaplan of the Bad Guys blog has a list of the Top Computer Crimes of the First Quarter of 2007. An excerpt:

Virus Transmitter Nabbed by FBI: In February, Richard C. Honour of Kenmore, Wash., pleaded guilty to releasing malicious computer viruses that infected DarkMyst and other Internet Relay Chat systems. Until the FBI showed up at his door, Honour got his kicks by inviting fellow IRC users to click on a movie link, which downloaded malware and created backdoor access to their computers.

Get a rope.
