RE: Over three million computers 0wned?

  • From: Marc

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?

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.
