Microsoft Recommends Internet Usage Tax for Cybersecurity

All right, I thought it was a little fishy that Microsoft would go after the Waledac botnet by itself. But, now I see why. This week Microsoft Corporate Vice President for Trustworthy Computing Scott Charney suggested an internet usage tax to defray costs of fighting hackers and viruses.

Interesting, make a big news splash about taking town a worldwide spam botnet, then recommend people pay for it by suggesting a new tax. That’s big business for you.
