Looks like this slipped under my Radar over the Xmas break? More at the Register

I would suggest that as all of these figures are estimates, they do need to be treated with a certain amount of caution, however it does point to a worrying trend that we all need to be vigilant both at work and at home?

1Estimates about dollar losses from e-commerce fraud ($2.8bn in 2005, according to CyberSource, for example) tend to pale in comparison to industry estimates of losses due to software piracy and computer viruses, both of which we've had cause to question in the past (see here, here and here). Gauging the financial impact of the e-crime is fraught with difficulties so the figures McNiven cites ought to be treated with caution.
