RE: Over three million computers 0wned?

It would be interesting to know if the FBI or any other group can
characterize how many computers are 0wn3d per minute.  Then, of those
computers, how many remain 0wn3d indefinitely?


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

The FBI estimates a car is stolen every 27 seconds somewhere in the US.
In 2000, FBI Uniform Crime Report statistics showed that 1,165,559 cars
were stolen; with an estimated value of $7.8 Billion.  Police apprehend
less than 15% of all auto thieves.
