QOTD on the Importance of Internet Identity and Anonymity

It's so easy to be anonymous on the Internet, that people can launch the equivalent of cyberwar and cyber-terrorist attacks from their living room, anywhere in the world, and with complete anonymity...
We are seeing this in sociopolitical and geopolitical hotspots. Organizations are reaching out individuals, telling them that if they install attack bots on their PC, that their system will be used to wage war. People can go to terrorist Web sites and download and install bots on their own. And those that are installing these applications built to attack will do so in total anonymity. -- Andrew Storms, Director of Security Operations at nCircle
