Cyber Crime is All the Rage

January 25, 2008 by David S. Seltzer

Hollywood is getting into the act. The new so-called technological thriller is Hollywood’s take on cyber crime. The movie’s premise is a cyber-crime FBI agent who investigates killings, where the weapon of choice is the internet. The movie title “Untraceable,” attempts to give people a sense of what is actually capable of happening when using the World Wide Web. The possibilities seem to be endless, but are they? Maybe to a point…

But in the end, possible, reasonable, or Hollywood? Cyber crime is here to stay. The question is how are the agencies that investigate the crimes going to deal with them.
