The group shows that more than 79 million records were reported compromised in the United States through December 18, 2007. That's a nearly four-fold increase from the nearly 20 million records reported in all of 2006.

According to Wired, another group, Attrition.org, estimates more than 162 million records compromised through December 21 - both in the U.S. and overseas, unlike the other group's U.S.-only list. Attrition reported 49 million last year.
