Posted Fri Dec 12 2008: from Greenpeace, via Mongabay:
Computer hackers are helping illegal loggers destroy the Amazon rainforest
Computer hackers are helping illegal loggers destroy the Amazon rainforest by breaking into the Brazilian government's timber tracking system and altering the records so as to increase logging allocations, reports Greenpeace.... "By hacking into the permit system, these companies have made their timber shipments appear legal and compliant with the forest management plans. But in reality, they're trading illegal timber which is making the problem of deforestation worse, and a lack of control and policing in the areas they're logging means they think they can get away with it."

W says: "What a novel approach: simply assert with false facts that you're complying with the law. Where did they come up with *that*?"
