Submission + - Your Identity is Worth Less Than $15 (

I Don't Believe in Imaginary Property writes: "One of the more interesting tidbits in the 105-page Symantec's Global Internet Threat Report (PDF) is the price sheet, which suggests that someone's 'full identity' is only worth about $1-$15, though your email password is worth $4-$30 and your bank account might fetch $10-$1000. With those prices, I wonder how often they pay more money for the bank account than is actually in it? They also have an executive summary (PDF) if the whole report is too long."
