Taimoor - I think it’s pretty sad since tells a lot about the condition of humanity. However, I don’t think all the companies fall into the same box.

"Feelings? Nawwwwwwwwwwww.

It's all about money, nothing more."


@Larry: Absolutely. At the end of the day everything translates back into money - be it the love for the country or the love for the organization. Financial gains has been one strong motivator behind many of the cyberattacks in the past.

"So, if we take the case of two organisations that have the cybercrime practice you mention, does it mean that their customers are also going to be targeted by the competition's cybercriminals because this will damage the sales of the competition? Who believes this to be true? It's just a popular saying with no grounds and evidence, or something else?"

@Susan: I think there's more than just the myth behind it. Unfortunately, in the past there have been several instances where the true culprit was eventually found to have a connection with the rival organization. Given the tough battle for market share these days, companies are tempted to take such measures to find ways of maligning the competition and winning over.

Taimoor - What you propose is more than hate and rivalry, it attempts to make believe that there is no sign of trust, honesty, and failness within any (?) organisation. This put any perspective in a position of always being on guard. So, if we take the case of two organisations that have the cybercrime practice you mention, does it mean that their customers are also going to be targeted by the competition’s cybercriminals because this will damage the sales of the competition? Who believes this to be true? It’s just a popular saying with no grounds and evidence, or something else?

It has popularly been believed that most of the Cybercrime is funded by competing entities. In case of organizations, it's believed that rivals are on the look out for exploiting ways to harm the competition. Similarly in case of attacks targeting national resources of a country, it is believed that the roots lie in funds raised through rival countries. How true do you think the role of hate and rivalry is when it comes to cybercrime?
