The Internet Sopranos

Very interesting article on organised crime and the structures and criminal business models that are forming around cybercrime in particular. The article opens with the line "Welcome to the age of the Internet gangster. Gone are the days when young computer nerds sat alone in their rooms figuring out how to break in to their schools' computer systems to change grades. Also fading into nostalgia are the times when hackers teamed up with small-time hoods to pull off credit-card scams that victimized local banks. "

Recommended read.
