Tech-crunch:- Hackers attack computers every 39 seconds

A study was recently set up to test how hackers access vulnerable computers. In the study, four Linux computers were set up with weak security and connected to the Internet .

“Our data provide quantifiable evidence that attacks are happening all the time to computers with Internet connections,” study author Michel Cukier of the University of Maryland said. “The computers in our study were attacked, on average, 2,244 times a day.”
