interesting site: securitystats.com
security stats dot com
I havent seen this site mentioned on AO before.
Its a pretty interesting site with all types of stats regarding computer crime/security.
Also featured are reports (from various sources including CERT and Symantec), tools (like a password strength meter, a port/protocol searcher) and a news section (amoungst other things).
Over all a nice site IMO.

some interesting facts there:
PSINet Europe purposely built an unprotected server and connected it to the Internet to determine how quickly it would be compromised. Their findings were astonishing:
* The server was maliciously attacked 467 times in the first 24 hours

some interesting stuff, but would you realy submit your passwords to http://securitystats.com/tools/password.php to see how strong it is.
What a great way to build up a list of passwords that people actually use
