IDG News Service:

"A new report released by security company Symantec
found that incidents of online identity theft scams,
also known as 'phishing attacks,' skyrocketed in the
second half of 2004, as did spam and new software
vulnerabilities. But other Internet blights, such as
zombie networks of compromised computers, or 'bots,'
actually declined."
