Creating Virtual Humans For Nefarious Purposes Is Easy

It is scary how easy it is to pull something like this off. I can see why this is a lucrative business on the black market.

During a presentation at Def Con, Rock demonstrated how easy it was to get doctor and undertaker credentials from publicly available databases and use those credentials to register birth and death certificates. In fact, you don't even need to create a fake baby to kill; you can kill one of your friends (or enemies) thanks to a system that doesn't verify the identity of medical professionals.
