Russian police decided to employ hackers. Hackers have created their own enhanced three-level security system. Policemen admitted that it is impossible to reveal criminals even after the second level. It is very complicated to establish the IP of the attacking site after the third layer of the system.

According to Russian police, 13 820 crimes in the sphere of high technologies were registered in 2004. It is a lot more than in 2003. Policemen say that increase in these crimes is related to hackers' confidence of their full impunity.

Thus a new "Department N" appeared. Former system admins or hackers will work within the department. These people should have special skills and knowledge, Igor Yakovlev, senior police investigator told CCRC.
