Submission + - Desktop computer hacks cost $7bn to US customers (arstechnica.com)

Christopher_Blanc writes: "The reality is that viruses, spyware, and other computer threats have cost to US households an estimated $7 billion over the last two years alone, and 25 percent of all households are likely to become a "cybervictim" this year. That's the word from Consumer Reports, which just announced the results of its most recent "State of the Net" survey. If Microsoft doesn't get its act together on security, it's going to have customers defecting — in droves. http://arstechnica.com/news.ars/post/20070807-the- state-of-the-net-is-not-so-strong.html"
