Foreign Cyberthieves Stole 867 Terabytes in 2011

Jaw-dropping article in The New York Times on How Much Have Foreign Hackers Stolen? The takeaway is Global_threat that as hackers improve their capabilities, and as Americans migrate to a mobile workplace, the problem has grown worse. It is far easier to steal trade secrets when Americans carry them around on their mobile devices.

Tom Kellermann, chief technology officer at AirPatrol, a wireless security company, is quoted in the article as saying: "We never let go of these things. We work with them; we even sleep next to them. That's the dark side of Web 3.0. Once someone hacks your device, they don't just hack the back end, they hack your network. They can turn your camera and microphone on. They can hack your whole life."
