School for crooks...
Isn't that where Dave and his pals graduated?
Brazil is the only market that offers training services for cybercriminal wannabes, making it possible to start a new career in cybercrime for just $500. Training modules, hands-on exercises, interactive guides, instructional videos, as well as post-training support are available, according to a new report of the Brazilian …
I was at Benning working with these idiots in the early to mid-1980s, both the US and their Central American puppets..............so you're correct: schools are schools. But better yet, we even schooled the Islamic State, which seems to be kickin' it across the Middle East, so school or not, we need a resolution, yes? And the lesson today is; You need to know the history before you make a judgement. There is ALWAYS a risk assessment before any action, menaing choose the bad one over the worst one.

Also of interest was this graphic on one of the articles you linked to. You will notice how skilfully the map has been cropped on its northern edge.
So while you might get a catchy headline off Brazil and everyone loves to hate Russia or distrust China, most of the cybercrime that actually has an impact on us is likely to come from some bloke in the Midlands or a cyber-redneck in Mississippi. I would love to read an article on that.
