ID Theft Doubles in Two Months
Dark Reading

MARCH 26, 2007 | Online identity theft grew at an unprecedented rate during the first two months of 2007, as its two chief components -- malware and phishing -- skyrocketed at rates of 50 to 200 percent. A study scheduled to be released tomorrow by Internet monitoring firm Cyveillance Inc., found more than 3 million pieces of personal information available on the Web, including approximately 320,000 debit and credit card numbers, 1.4 million Social Security numbers, and 1.3 million account login credentials....

The truly sad thing is that this will mean some kind of internet policing at some point. The new frontier days are over and soon we will have sheriffs.

Unless of course ninja's get off their buts and fix it.

I can see pc's ending up needing the equivalent of an MOT to access the net at some point

MOT's used to be round stickers that went onto the windscreen. Can't drive le car without one. Bummer, Big Brother will reveal more of his caring goodness one of these days. It'd be nasty to have to give up the Web. And get a life? Noooo!
