Hackers and Crackers and Hollywood, Oh My

Hmm. This made me go "Hmm."

"So let me say now to any politicians reading this, as one of the people who helped make Blackhat feel authentic, nuclear plants are not exploding. And if you think they might, then you should direct your efforts to locking down critical systems. Pour money into research, offer incentives for organizations to invest in security, pass disclosure laws that require public reporting of breaches, so consumers can hold negligent companies accountable. Blindly boosting sentences for the few hackers who get caught will do nothing to help. And outlawing security tools just because they can be abused will only aid the real blackhats." - Kevin Poulsen
