Here is a fun blog entry, summarizing what this venture capitalist considers to be 'Internet Axis of Evil':
- Spam and Viruses
- Comment Spam/Link Spam
- DNS Hacking
What do they all have in common? Well, for one he says that 'there is money to be made in each of them'. Great! Also, it seems that most of the entries appear to affect consumers/end users rather than businesses (at least, not directly) and that seems to contradict the above. Interesting!
The money is in all cases to be made both by perpatrating the acts and by selling tools to prevent/circumvent/detect them.
