Comment Re:Where did you get "guesstimate" ? (Score 1) 164

No idea where I got guesstimate, just seems to me that the damage amounts in all recent hacking cases are higher than would be expected for someone invading a network and printing some rude message. After years of hearing reports of the government paying outrageous sums for contract work it would only be a slight stretch to apply the same overinflated amounts to "virtual damage" done to government networks to try and build high dollar cases against hackers to get a better chance at extradition.
