The United States generates more malicious computer activity than any other country, and sophisticated hackers worldwide are banding together in highly efficient crime rings, according to a new report.By AP/JORDAN ROBERTSON Monday, Mar 19, 2007 ...Criminals may purchase verified credit card numbers for as little as $1, and they can buy a complete identity — a date of birth and U.S. bank account, credit card and government-issued identification numbers — for $14, according to Symantec's twice-yearly Internet Security Threat Report released Monday.

The only easy day was yesterday.

We're number 1!


Oh, wait - maybe that's not such a good thing.

Gee, a false and forged identity for $14, that's significantly less than what I pay for a decent pair of shoes. What a thing for a country to be known for.

The U.S is really not as safe as people say....the internet here could be equivalent in chaos and violence as the Iraq war...at least no one dies though.

And they say we need to import educated immigrants with H1-B Visas because there are no educated Americans. But wait! Just because these bugs came from America doesn't mean they came from Americans

It also occurs to me that brilliant American youngsters have nothing to do with their talents except to test their genius by creating these malicious codes. Somebody gave their jobs away to cheap overseas labor.
