Given the size of the US, I'm not at all surprised at this report. However, I would have expected that the country with the worst record for this (i.e. the most) would be either China or Russia.

The person that infected 72,000 computers only got 4 years in prison. Which means time server and about 2 years more. Why can't we just hang them?
