    Actually they didn't help because the issue didn't have enough of a financial impact on the world economy. Frankly unless you are a multi-billion dollar corporation they really can't care enough to put down the coffee and take down some information.

      The reason they have the FBI is so the CIA can handle international things. Or was it so the FBI could handle internal things... Anyway, you should have contacted the CIA.

        No, actually the FBI is the appropriate agency to contact. It is up to them to escalate it to the CIA. The CIA doesn't handle cases like these directly which is why you have FBI agents in many different countries investigating terrorism. The CIA is only involved in matters of National Security which this doesn't fall into.

        In short, the CIA is not a police agency. The FBI is.

            Well there is some truth to that, i guess.. I host with VO
            My site was compromised over the weekend, i was away in Detroit.

            The FBI is now investigating, but only due to the Microsoft content on my site, that is not publicly available.

            They never did any defacing at all.
            However i am not very happy that VO wont fix certain issues with my server, until the security audit is done.
            The problems that are ongoing and that they wont fix yet, are a high security risk, i can't believe they are just leaving them..

              Since when does the FBI or the CIA handle issues of the UK? :shrug:

                  I know James spoke to the High Tech Crimes division in the UK, to ask for their help and they liased with the FBI but as Steve and others have said - they were not really that interested and secondly did not really know what to do

                        Word to that. It's not like everyone in the world uses vB. Their customer base is miniscule compared to that of Microsoft. If all the boards using vB got hacked it would hardly affect the large scheme of the world. If all the Microsoft machines got hacked, it would be worse than 9/11 inasmuch as chaos. (there would be more life lost, too, as hospital systems went down, etc etc)
