    Cybercrime is bigger than illegal drugs by some estimates. Armies of servers with bots running on them just relentlessly looking to exploit anything they can find.
    that's a hack nearly every second for a day.

    I don't believe that's possible.

    One thing I do find a tad ironic in all of this is Edward Snowden had a lot of information about hacking into US systems. But we threatened him and put him on the run so we don't know what he knows. It potentially could have been quite informative.
