The PIP recently released the results of a rather uninteresting study that was reported almost everywhere for some reason.
They asked \"How concenered are you about the following types of internet crime\", and \"Which one of these types of Internet crimes converns you the MOST\".
From those 2 questions they draw this conclusion:
\"... and 50% of Americans cite child porn as the single most heinous crime that takes place online\"
Did I miss something there?
The #1 answer in to both questions was Child Pornography, but how did they arrive at that conclusion?
SiliconValley.com put it best when they said, \"People least worried about big Internet risk\".
eMarketer.com has a the Report broken down with lots of nifty charts and grafts.
So what have we learned here?
People worry about child pornogrphy [Which is horrible, awful and should be illegal, but doesn\'t come after you and steal your stuff], meanwhile they\'re being DOS\'d, or a Cracker [Note: not Hacker] just grabbed their credit card numbers.
If you are so inclined, you can actually go Read The Full Report.
