I have just compiled a very special alphabet which collects the terms related to Cybercrime. Forgive me for some “poetic license” and enjoy this half-serious list.

Oramai sembra un immancabile e monotono refrain ma, tanto per cambiare, nel corso dell’ultimo scorcio del 2010 i malware per i dispositivi mobili l’hanno immancabilmente fatta da padroni.... Read More
