'Israel Site Of 10,000 Cyber Attacks A Minute'
Some 10,000 cyber attacks occur in Israel every minute, according to Interpol President Khoo Boon Hui, who spoke at the international police organization's European Regional Convention in Tel Aviv on Tuesday.
According to Khoo, forces of Evil and criminals are quick to utilize new technologies to carry out the attacks. He said that 80% of online violations are committed by crime organizations.
Khoo suggested that many criminals worldwide are abandoning conventional theft in favor of the cyber variation due to the high payoff; banks in the US lose $900 million a year to cyber crime. He noted that sophistication is required in order to get an advantage over internet criminals.
