narramissic writes "According to the Internet Security Threat Report (PDF download), released Monday by Symantec, identity thieves are offering a person's credit-card number, date of birth and other sensitive information on the cheap. 'U.S.-based credit cards with a card verification number were available for between $1 to $6, while an identity — including a U.S. bank account, credit card, date of birth and government-issued identification number — was available for between $14 to $18,' the report said."
