Hey, Sean.

] Trustcorps claims it has scientific and anecdotal resaerch supporting its
] conclusion that over three million computers are "owned" by malicious
] groups.


] On the other hand, Information Risk Management questioned how any one
] person could "own" hundreds of computers at any one time.  And systems are
] often not "owned" by a single group, but exploited by multiple groups

How could one person "own" hundreds of computers at any one time?
Since several individuals own thousands, tens of thousands, and
even (low) hundreds of thousands of systems at any one time, I
suppose the reason they don't own hundreds is because that isn't
enough.  :/

] Like most statistics, the "truth" is probably a little harder to find, and
] a little bit scarier.
