Re: UK.Gov, non merci

Sued are you serious?!?

When your device is one of a million+ strong botnet, there's not much chance anyone's coming after you. Especially if the target is no longer in business.

In today's brave new Britain, apparently plod isn't going to bother investigating "open window" type crimes any more so they're unlikely to waste their resources tracking down IOT owners. After all they've got more important things to worry about like, say, hate crimes. 600 against one person if you can trust an MPs recent claim; that should take a few man hours to resolve. Or not, as the case may be.
