Bank hacking: is it on the rise? [Infographic]

At the end of August, bank hacker Ehud Tenenbaum was photographed leaving court, having pleaded guilty to a single count of bank-card fraud. Tenenbaum, who is Iraeli by birth, had been arrested in Canada last year for allegedly stealing roughly $1.5 million in a bank hacking scheme. But before Canadian authorities could prosecute him, he was extradited back to the United States. Now he pleads guilty to having played a major role in a sophisticated computer-hacking scheme that officials believe scored $10 million from US banks.

A day in the INTERNET [Infographic]

The internet is a huge place but just how much information is passed each day? The following statistics should give you some idea of just how much information is being generated in a given day on the internet. Even if you thought the internet was big, likely these numbers will surprise you.

Starting with email, in one day, there are more emails sent out that than a whole years worth of letter mail in the US. To do that, over 210 billion emails are sent out each day over the web. Of course emails aren’t the only content that is being transmitted. There are some 3 million images uploaded each day to flikr alone. That is enough to fill a hypothetical 375,000 page photo album.
