News - Statistics: 1000 cyberattacks / hour...

Tom Whitehead, Britain is target of up to 1000 cyber attacks every hour, 22 octobre 2012, The Telegraph:

- "Cyber crime is estimated to cost the UK about £27 billion annually"
- "it is possible to buy off-the-shelf malicious software, such as that designed to steal bank details from people’s computers, for as little as £3,000"
- "Britain is being targeted by up to 1,000 cyber attacks every hour"

But the most interesting point in the article concerns the opinion of the Intelligence and Security Committee, that believes "Britain should declare cyber war on states and criminals who target the country by using aggressive retaliatory strikes to destroy their own operations".

The escalation of violence is a real risk too!
