      Law enforcers report spike in cybercrime Cybercrime cases are rising in
      high-tech regions, say U.S. law-enforcement officials. Prosecutors and
      investigators are seeing more cases related to computer hacking, theft
      of trade secrets and hardware, and other tech crimes. In Silicon
      Valley, the Santa Clara District Attorney's Office is tackling almost 30
      tech-related cases this year =97 twice as many as last year,
      investigator John McMullen says.

      the Code Red computer worms that were unleashed on the Internet in July
      and August has reached about $2.6 billion, an independent research firm
      said Friday. While hefty, that was just a part of the total cost of
      attacks on computer systems this year.

      Top Hacking Tools Site Restricts Access Citing a desire to thwart
      "script kiddies" and security companies, a popular site that provides
      free hacking tools has closed its doors to the general public.
      Hack.co.za will no longer allow all visitors to download its collection
      of exploits, according to its operator, a South African who uses the

      Russia tells computer experts to stay home Russia warned its computer
      experts Friday of the dangers of visiting the United States after a
      Russian software designer was arrested there for violating a
      controversial new law. Last July, Dmitry Sklyarov became the first
      person to be arrested on charges of selling technology designed to
      circumvent a 1998 U.S. copyright protection law. Formally arraigned
      Thursday, he faces up to 25 years in jail if convicted.
