I've been reviewing some of the other blogs covering cybercrime and want to share with you five that I've found most interesting.

Kenyantykoon's Blog on African Cybercrime: A very good country-by-country summary of one of the hot beds of cybercrime.

Cybercrime and Doing Time: One of the older blogs on cybercrime written by Gary Warner, Director of Research in Computer Forensics at the University of Alabama.  He tends to focus on spam and phishing scams.  He writes very cogently about cybercrime. This is a typical post on the current Bank of America phishing scam.

Schneier on Security: Not specifically focused on cybercrime, but deals with it frequently enough to make my list. Besides if you don't enjoy Bruce's writing, you're not paying attention.

The Cybersleuth: Written by a criminal defense attorney in Miami. His piece on the security issues associated with cloud computing entitled A Chastity Belt for the Cloud, is quite insightful. Blogs: Multiple authors and obviously focused on ID theft. Certainly not visually appealing, but provides comprehensive perspective on the myriad ways you can lose control of your identity.

I'll update this list periodically as I find more blogs that are both useful and readable.
