#54 ZombieMeter keeps count of hacked PC's

Here's an interesting addition to our industry...

Internet security company CipherTrust on Thursday breathed life into its ZombieMeter, a new system that tracks traffic from compromised PCs around the world. Available on the CipherTrust Web site, the ZombieMeter tracks the number of new 'zombies' per hour and is designed to help identify Internet security threats, the company said in a statement.

So far this month, CipherTrust has found an average of 172,009 new zombies each day. About 26 percent of those were found in the European Union, 20 percent in the United States and 15 percent in China, the company said.
