Default The Scrap Value of a Hacked PC,

A few years back, when I was a reporter at The Washington Post, I put together a chart listing the various ways that miscreants can monetize hacked PCs. The project was designed to explain simply and visually to the sort of computer user who canít begin to fathom why miscreants would want to hack into his PC. ďI donít bank online, I donít store sensitive information on my machine! I only use it to check email. What could hackers possibly want with this hunk of junk?,Ē are all common refrains from this type of user.
