Microsoft and the Open Source community agree on something?

The House of Lords Science and Technology Committee, currently investigating personal Internet security, were told this week that the public face real difficulties in reporting internet based crime. Representatives of Microsoft and members of the open source community agreed that police lack the skills and expertise to deal effectively with cases of internet crime that are brought to them.

Jerry Fishenden, National Technology Officer for Microsoft UK pointed out that reporting cyber crime is extremely difficult and the public are confused as to how they should go about it. He said:

Microsoft and the Open Source community agree more must be done to make reporting cyber-crime easier.
