Hacking a web host's server is so common that most of these criminal acts are not reported.
Is that statement above true?
If it is true, is there any way for this to change?
I thought that hacking into a web host's server and defacing landing pages, or removing files, etc. was a federal crime in most nations.
I was informed that was the case in the United States of America. How about your country?
I am not going to expose on whose server this occurred and I will not confirm or deny any guesses to that affect in this thread.
I do not wish to cause harm to anyone, but I am very concerned with a situation where a crime is so common that it's of no use to report it. That to report the crime causes more harm to the company that reports it than the harm caused by the criminals because the server upon which the crime was committed needs to be removed from the building in which it's supposed to be to do its job.
I am extremely concerned that a company owner feels that I, a customer, am doing harm by searching for answers like those I am asking here. That I am a troublemaker being "dramatic".
I am concerned about a community, The Net, that feels it's the price one must pay to do business on the Net -- let the criminals go free. Don't bother to report a crime.
I have been informed that the company does not have enough information to report the crime. How could that be true?
I would really appreciate some feedback people, because I am very confused.
