Examples include recent hacking attacks on PayPal for its refusal to support WikiLeaks by processing donations to it, and attacks against law enforcement agencies[14] in protest of alleged corruption or police brutality. Financially Motivated Attacks Financial motivation is the easiest to understand, and we spend most of our time in this book on this category of cyber crime. SUMMARY Cyber crime’s face and composition has changed drastically in the past decade, and legislation has not kept pace with advances in cyber crime technologies.

If all that is true—and as investigators, incident response consultants, and police officers, we aver that it is—there’s almost no reason for any self-respecting, reasonably intelligent criminal not to resort to cybercrime. In addition, and this is the most important point to understand in this section on the psychology of the attacker, there’s no reason for your attacker to go anything less than full bore. Armed with the knowledge that they are effectively immune from prosecution, professional cybercriminals are bold, audacious, relentless, remorseless, and utterly devoid of sympathy for their victims.
