I agree with most of the arguments presented. However, I think there is one missing, which is very relevant: attackers have the perception of a very low risk of being captured, with a very interesting return. Clearly this is not well balanced as it is in other crimes. Furthermore, another argument should be enforced: there are no practical stimulus for changing the way information systems are engineered; software is developed prioritizing functional (flexible) requirements, which should not be implemented id security issues would take into account. Security devices and systems would be appellative?
