Cybercrime in Brazil and Beyond: A deeper significance

Brazil Becomes a Cybercrime Lab
The country is becoming a laboratory for cybercrime, with hackers - able to collaborate with relative impunity - specializing in identity and data theft, credit card fraud and piracy, as well as online vandalism.

Education + access to knowledge + lack of alternative opportunities + intellect + youth = cybercrime. In Russia add in "organized crime" for a slightly different spin.

That equation means that youthful (re: "developing") nations with dysfunctional economic systems will be fountains of cybercrime.

Wait until they become fountains of biohacking.

Maybe we need to rethink our approach to the world?
