Another profile of crackers/attackers/malicious hackers/whatevers
As seen on slashdot:
An Israeli student did her doctoral dissertation by profiling Israeli hackers (using this term as her interviewees seem to be a cut above the average skrypt kiddie). Not sure how statistically relevant this study is, but the article is a pretty good read.
Interesting to counterpoint this with the extortion crackers, who seem an entirely different demographic.
