Emin Gün Sirer pours cold water on the “Craig Wright is Satoshi Nakamoto” theory
Is the Irish policing system capable of tackling computer crime? A report this week from the Garda Inspectorate makes it clear that the answer is no. There is no Garda cybercrime unit, which is of serious concern given the threat posed by cybercrime to key national infrastructure such as energy, transport and telecommunications systems. […] A combination of inadequate resources and increased workload have swamped the [Computer Crime Investigation Unit]. Today, almost every crime is a computer crime, in the sense that mobile phones, laptops and even devices such as game consoles are likely to contain evidence. The need to forensically inspect all these devices – using outdated equipment – has resulted in several-year delays and seem to have forced the unit into a position where it is running to stand still rather than responding to new developments.
