    This would be a patently false as there are, among many cases, the well documented event of Montreal based Solaria acquiring Lavasoft AB • This is still disputed •

    A recent credit card sting made news aggregator feeds. There are plenty of pay-per-click based firms here, as well. To borrow from Canadian Marshall McLuhan, Cybercrime is a Global Village

    The Microsoft SIR Worldwide Threat Assessment figures for phishing sites for end of 2011, on page 68, would not seem to concur with Websense findings, but then maybe a better overall judgement can be made by taking a range of findings into account, rather than just one analysis.
