hacker fearmongering

IBM just had one of those “the hackers are out there” tv ads.

I remember reading somewhere that some government agency reported some astronomical number of hack attempts per day.

I bet you a steak dinner they include these:

OMG I just had eight hack attempts! Seriously this does not count as a hack.
