DIGICRIME
http://www.digicrime.com/
If you have a good sense of humor, you'll like this site. If you suffer from tunnel vision and can not see the value behind the kind of--well--lack of a better word--serious joke approach to this site--then stay away--you'll liekly be offended. When I first looked at it, I found it very alarming and started to go away considering it was a sicko hacker's page. Although it's a joke, the serious side of it is that the services it jokeingly offers are offered by high tec criminals. This is really a kind of "alarming" security site that shows you just how valnerable things really are. It has pages off the main menu for services (not really but it makes you think) for things like Internet eavesdropping, stealing competitor's secrets, stock price minipulation, hot computers at wholesale prices, wealth redistribution services, password generation services, install a virus service and stuff like that. Take a look, understand they really don't offer these services but understand that for a fee some criminals do. This is really a page on digital crime that is occuring which we should all know about and as time moves forward, you'll more than likely be called upon to investigate one.
