Home Computer Users Under Attack

According to this article, home computer users are targeted by hackers more than any other group, accounting for 86 per cent of all targeted attacks, followed by financial services companies. "During the first six months of 2006, 157,477 unique phishing messages were detected, representing an increase of 81 per cent. Spam made up 54 per cent of all monitored email traffic."
