The hypothetical situation:
X number of hackers are at location A
these hackers are trying to steal file C off file server B
A has a fixed bandwidth. Every hacker has his/her own laptop with the required software.
while server B has an administrator, and all the common security stuff (firewalls, password protection etc)
My question is: does increasing the number of hackers (X) increase the success rate of stealing file C?
Can a larger number of hackers get the job done faster?
Does a larger number of hackers increase the chances of getting caught?
And last but not least, is it worth the cost and effort of getting are larger number of hackers verses a smaller number of hackers? (Assume the skill level of the hackers are the same)
