Quote: "Attacks on Defense computer systems are a serious and growing threat. The exact number of attacks cannot be readily determined because only a small portion are actually detected and reported. However, Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) data implies that Defense may have experienced as many as 250,000 attacks last year. DISA information also shows that attacks are successful 65 percent of the time, and that the number of attacks is doubling each year, as Internet use increases along with the sophistication of 'hackers' and their tools." - General Accounting Office report entitled "Computer Attacks at Department of Defense Pose Increasing Risks". It was later disclosed that the estimates were based on staged attacks from within the military.
