I spend a good portion of my day crawling the RSS feeds and one of the first sites that I hit is slashdot.org/
. I do not consider them the definitive answer to all tech news but I do get an idea of the main headlines of the day. So lo and behold I find out that one of the headlines is titled "Death Penalty for Hackers?"
Slightly more than a farfetched and whimsical idea, I think that once again people are looking for a witch to burn. Yes, virii can cause thousands upon thousands of dollars in losses but who in the first place decided not to upgrade a system and not updating with the correct patches? I am at a loss of words. Besides, I have to take my kid to Chucky Cheese.
