Cyber-attacks ‘more aggressive than ever’

A report from Symantec states that most Cyber-attacks are getting more organized, and better at getting data.  I was surprised to read that, by far, most of the attacks come from within the U.S., at 31% and over three times higher than second place China at 10%.

Here is a link to MSNBC’s take on the report, and here is the report itself.

The short answer to the story is to not open attachments from anyone you don’t know, and don’t respond to e-mails with personal information.  Now that most of us have properly patched systems and firewalls, online criminals are trying to trick us via e-mail.
