SANS - Survey on application security programs

Research out today from ICL indicates that some people are taking problems with their PCs far too seriously.

Apparently, even though no one gives a monkey's about viruses, one in ten people think that a problem with a computer is worse than missing a holiday flight. Worse, eight out of ten find a PC failure more stressful than being left by their partner.

Who are these people? I mean, come on, its just a computer, fer gawd's sake.

ICL also found that one in four of same group of respondents admitted they waste between 30 minutes and an hour a day due to slow and unreliable technology, but only 60 per cent think that waiting ages for tech support is bad for their productivity.

Presumably the other 40 per cent are just grateful for the break or have gone into mourning at the sight of the blue screen of death.

We are not quite sure what to make of this research except that the people the researchers were questioning were one megabyte short of a DIMM. ®
