Crime in virtual world

Back from holidays, late on posting, but could not resist this one: according to McAfee, one of the multiple anti-virus companies, illegal behaviours are now numerous. Viruses, scams, phishing etc... all flourish and it is not a virtual behaviour. The financial consequences are real because virtual currency can be converted into "real" currency. Maybe it should be time to stop talking of virtual and real, and use concepts like "online"/"offline" currencies, both being real in their existence, and not always immediately tangible.,1000000189,39466789,00.htm
