Microsoft Launches Internet Crime Portal

An NewFactor Network article by Walaika Haskins, via Yahoo! News, reports that:

At a High Technology Crime Investigation Association event on Wednesday, Microsoft announced plans to launch a Web site that will aid police in investigating Internet crime.

Analysts say the move should resonate with the law enforcement community as a valuable crime-fighting tool. The announcement comes on the heels of the FBI's Microsoft-aided investigation into the origins of the ZoTob worm, which crippled business across the U.S. last month.

"Over the past months, cybercrime has gone from casual to malicious to criminal," said Joe Wilcox, a senior analyst at Jupiter Research.
