Kaspersky Lab's fonder and CEO Eugene Kaspersky and Mikko Hypponen, Chief Research Officer at F-Secure, recently examined how hacking has evolved from mere script kiddies meddling for kicks or to build street cred with their peers into an environment where cyber criminals, hacktivists and even governments are engaged in serious offensive operations. The talk was one of many at this week's DLD13 conference, which featured over 150 subject matter experts addressing nearly 1000 attendees on such matters as "mobile payment, 3-D printing, search, cyberwar, and big data," according to DLD.

The following video is an edited excerpt of Hypponen's and Kaspersky's talk.
