Net Our Problem Mate

It's reported that Greater Manchester Police (GMP) will not be pursuing the criminals who used a Trojan horse program to lock a Manchester woman's files and demanded a ransom to release them.

A story in Silicon.Com today has Greater Manchester Police commenting: "We aren't investigating the incident as it's an internet crime and not within the GMP area - technically it's international."

This illustrates the jurisdictional mess in which the world findself where NetCrime is involved.
