English term or phrase:And that's before we get into the politics of cybercrime.
Why? Some countries or regions have poor laws. Others have ample resources of talented criminals for whom a computer is today's tool of choice—just as their fathers might have favored a jimmy. In some countries, cybercrime as it's defined in the United States turns out to be legal.
And that's before we get into the politics of cybercrime. Is a hacker who hacks into an oil company's network to create damage a cybercriminal or ecowarrior? A European Marxist launches distributed denial-of-service attacks on several major U.S. financial institutions: cybercriminal or political zealot? And when do soft, blurred labels such as "ecowarrior" and "political zealot" become "terrorist"? When the perpetrators are Arabs, operating out of an Internet café in the back streets of Amman or Riyadh? One of the more visible international hacker groups from the U.S. perspective is the China Eagle Union, which is widely regarded as ideologically motivated and which engaged in a massive online attack directed at U.S. targets in 2001.
