Sounds good. Now we just need someone to send around a press release
stating that 1 out of 3 (asshole statistic) corporations, government
organizations, and educational institutions are unwittingly helping
Cyber-Terrorists commit their evil deeds; and 25% of those (another
asshole statistic) don't care that they're aiding and abetting
Basically, we want to shame these companies into fixing their networks.
Public image is a killer.
