Arrested in the UK for computer crime? What happens next


Interesting article on the Register The comments are enlightening.


Haven’t read El Reg for years, since they began giving Guido Fawkes and his Faux-Libertarian Tory ratbag friends top-billing. I’ll have a peek tho.


thereg cracks me up. Nucking futs.


The article’s pretty much spot-on, but having been arrested a few times, and done a bit of a degree in infosec & forensics, I could have told you all that stuff…


Aha. I’ve only ever been talked to by the nice policepeople. One pulled me over the other day on the pretense I was not paying attention in traffic, so I batted my eyelids and showed him what was between my legs (aren’t all bobbies bent?). My shiny motociccle. He did approve, and I moved on, unharmed.

I’d love me a bit of infosec & forensics, it’s good brain nosh.


I sacked it off partly cos I’m a knacker, and prone to bad decisions, partly cos you end up working for the kind of people who Snowden outed, or spying on employees for HR depts. I don’t want to be that person.


Jebus save us. Like keeping an eye on the chappie with the bad back while he bungee jumps in Madagascar?


Pretty much, aye. And forensics = ‘trawling HDDs in kiddie porn cases’. I saw what that did to our Forensics prof & thought ‘fuck that’…


Yeah, that’s somewhere I wouldn’t want to go.
