“BATON ROUGE — Lafayette Sen. Mike Michot has declared war on people who deliberately plant destructive programs in other people's computers and people who go “phishing.”

Computer fraud “is a big problem” that often costs individuals and companies large sums of money and can cause computers to lose important information, Michot said.

Another problem, he said, is that it enables people who plant spywear or “go phishing” — sending out realistic-looking fake e-mails that ask for information on bank accounts or credit cards — to steal vital information.”

They finally "get it" that taking a strong stand against spyware can help them look good. "Hey, I'm fighting the bad guys for you. Re-elect me!"

I bet in the coming months they'll ALL jump on this bandwagon.

*sigh*
