Econometrics of wickedness

August 30th, 2007 at 08:19 UTC by Ross Anderson

Last Thursday I gave a tech talk at Google; you can now watch it online. It’s about work a number of us have done on searching for covert communities, with a focus on reputation thieves, phisherman, fake banks and other dodgy businesses.

While in California I also gave a talk on Information Security Economics, first as a keynote talk at Crypto and later as a seminar at Berkeley (the slides are here).

    One of the groups that Ross mentions at the end of his talk is the ad-carrying websites operated by Privila Inc. I’ve just posted a further blog article which gives considerably more detail about their operation.
