Author: JT Smith

BBC: "A decoy computer network set up to record every
attempt to crack it open and subvert it has revealed just
how active and determined malicious hackers have
become.

Statistics gathered by the
network show that computers
connected to the web are
scanned for weaknesses up
to 14 times per day and that,
on average, an attempt will
be made to break into a
net-connected computer
every three days."
