Symantec’s Threat Report Findings

In its recent Internet Security Threat Report, Symantec's findings claim that stolen credit cards are being sold online for as little as one dollar. Symantec's report also indicated that of all the stolen cards, approximately 86% of them were issued in the United States, followed by the United Kingdom coming in around 7%.

A number of other items were also indicated to be hot commodities in underground circles, ranging from 10,000$ bank accounts for 300$, government issued identification cards at 14-18$ to "World of Warcraft" accounts coming in at 10$. Symantec's report goes further to state that internet phishing scams are possibly so wide spread because, in order to make any money, scam artists need thousands of victims at the current rates of 3-5$ per host.
