(I'm sure the *aggregate* take is well > over that, but what *single entity* is seeing that magnitude losses?) You can quote me. Phishing in the US is by far lkess sophisticated than, for example, in Europe. There the banks are a bit more sophisticated as well in defensive tech. I hate for this to be a quote by me, but Super Worms which steal credit card, account data, login info. etc. for banks, credit card companies and ecommerce sites online number at the millions a day. Including repeat customers. As to signle banks, forget my numbers for a second, I am willing to accept yours for the sake of argument (we can argue digits over the phone). A million in losses a day is enough. Gadi.
