Mafia Bolsters Reach into Cyberspace

 "Just how pervasive is cybercrime?" queries CNNMoney.com in an article titled The Cyber Mafia has already hacked you.

"Large, organized crime syndicates have been launching sophisticated attacks against individuals and major corporations for decades. The result of their efforts is the theft of billions of dollars every year, and a large, ongoing presence in many of our most sensitive computer systems."

The Sony attack that stole credit card information from 77 million customers and the Citigroup hack that stole $2.7 million from about 3,400 accounts in May are part of organized crime," the article notes.

'It's not like the Mafia, it is a Mafia running these operations,' said Karim Hijazi, CEO of botnet monitoring company Unveillance.
