Interesting Fact - The Internet

According to ZDNet, 51 per cent of website traffic is through automated software programs, often with    malicious activity in mind.

(The breakdown of an average site’s traffic is as follows:

- 5% = hacking tools looking for an unpatched or new vulnerability within a site.

- 5% = scrapers.

- 2% = automated comment spammers.

- 19% = “spies” collating competitive intelligence.

- 20% = search engines (non-human traffic but benign).

- 49% = real people who are actually browsing the Internet.

Maybe I should cut my visitor logs in half.)
