THREE ARRESTED OVER ‘LARGE SCALE’ BURGLARY SPREE

this will be a case worth watching as it may tell us something of how burglary gangs are organised or reorganising. Police allege this is linked to burglaries all over the country. One thing we know about the Irish is that they travel, with important diasporas in the UK, USA and Australia. Increasingly also in continental Europe. Most other European gangs would be getting into fraud, drugs, people trafficking, sex crime or cybercrime.

BIG DATA: POLICE GIVEN ACCESS TO BRITISH ARMY’S CRIME-FIGHTING SOFTWARE

It isnt crime fighting software. It’s data handling software being used to process large quantities of data and turn it/them into evidence. Video data as well as words. expensive and being used by Royal Military Police. Its a bit of a sloppy article, presumably that started off as a press release.

TOR ‘DEEP WEB’ SERVERS GO OFFLINE AS IRISH MAN IS HELD OVER CHILD ABUSE IMAGES

There will be more on this on geek webpages, but the story appears to be that the FBI managed to use malware to identify some users IP addresses. I’m not sure that our man from the Guardian hasnt entangled at least two, maybe three separate stories together. Firstly, there’s a guy in jail in Dublin awaiting extradition proceedings. secondly, a number of users of Tor disappeared from the network over the weekend. Thirdly, the story this post began with. More to follow, I suspect.
