How Microsoft Appointed Itself Sheriff of the Internet

“There’s simply no other company that takes such a direct approach to taking on scammers.”

Robert McMillian of wired.com report on How Mircosoft appointed itself sheriff of the internet is right to the point we’ve been making over the years. If more companies were taking legal actions against cyber-criminals and those harboring these creeps like Mircosoft have been doing, then Target, Home Depot, JP Morgan Chase and many more US companies may not have endured data breaches.

What we mean by this? We defined cyber-crime as a web of individuals, venture capitalists, investment bankers, ISP providers acting knowingly or unknowingly in aiding cyber criminals by their actions, company policies and business practices.

From reading wired.com article, it appears like legal scholars and security experts such as the Eric Goldman, a First Amendment Professor at Santa Clara University, California and Electronic Frontier Foundation disagreed with Mircosoft practices.

They argued that Mircosoft actions as sheriff thwarts our legal system of adjudication, deprived a person of Due Process Under the Law. In essence what Mr. Goldman and the Electronic Frontier Foundation are saying is that Doctrine of Habeas Corpus should be evoke.

“No-IP is a legitimate company whose services are used by thousands of law-abiding citizens. The fact that Microsoft could knock it offline, as if it were another Waledac, has many observers worried.”

As you can see, cybercriminals are well financed. To take them down would require a company like Mircosoft or Target or JP Morgan Chase. Someone with deep pockets and the resources like Mircosoft to take on these creeps. Mircosoft must not be the only company fighting cyber crimes. Others need to follow.

scamFRAUDalert position is that we are at WAR. Our privacy are being invaded. The public safety is at risk. Article I Section 9, Clause 2 of the US Constitution states “The privilege of the Writ of Habeas Corpus shall not be suspended, unless where in Cases of Rebellion or Invasion of Public Safety.”

We believe there is an invasion of public safety with the spreading of malwares as in the case of IP’S addresses associated with NO-IP.com or any company that houses malwares. Public safety tramp our judicial processes and collateral damages that may result. These individuals are well financed, can easily buy US Senators and Judges.
