If you've had some form of computer security incident in the past year, you're part of the majority.
According to the FBI's just released 2005 Computer Crime Survey, 87 percent of respondents reported some form of computer security incident in the past year.
To add insult to injury, the study found that respondents encountered nearly three different types of security incidents, each of which occurred multiple times.
The approximate average dollar cost from viruses was noted to be nearly $34,000.
By way of comparison, respondents of the 2005 CSI/FBI Computer Crime and Security Survey, reported an average dollar loss from a security breach was $204,000 in 2004.
The CSI/FBI survey is a different survey than the FBI Computer Crime Survey with a smaller number of respondents.
It's not all doom and gloom though.
