Re: How to Handle ISPs Who Turn a Blind Eye to Criminal Activity?
I am happy to hear about the panel.
Back to the subject at hand...
As things are today, ISPs' authority, responsibility, liability and technical difficulties differe considerably from country to country, and more over--are not regulated in many fashions (where this applies, can't regulate tech difficulty, can we?)
Further, as the swamp is so distorted and radiated, it is often difficult to accuse providers who try to cope.
Then we have providers who turn a blind eye to a level where they are black hat.
Then we have black hat providers which provide such services. As in criminal services.
The sad fact is, these are not just in Russia or China, but exist in the US and other western countries as well.
The time soon approaches when we need to clean house if we are to "clean the net". I suppose we may as well start with the lower-hanging fruit because the very idea of cleaning the net is propostrous.
There is no reason to gun for businesses, but if the businesses are in fact criminal (which is surprisingly easily defined, think RBN), and cause that much trouble, we can gun for them and feel good about it, too.
