What is your identity worth?
About $18 dollars according to this article based upon a report by Symantec. Slightly misleading, as I don't think you can go and get a specific persons identity for that price. However, you can buy "an identity" for that sum. It is still scary stuff. Just credit card numbers range from one dollar to 4 dollars. Again according to Symantec, 25% of all leaked information came from pilfered government information. Health care and education rank right behind the government as sources of the info. Here is a shocker, only 13% came from hacking (though one can say all of the stolen info was hacked by some definitions).
And here I just thought Symantec was busy preparing reports that knocked Vista and Microsoft's inherent conflict of interest in providing operating systems and security programs that protect them ;-)
