The Economics of Information Security

I have uploaded a paper that I've just finished that surveys the literature on the economics of information. It discusses malware, botnets, and other attacks, and the defenses against them.

Frankly, I think it's pretty dry stuff. I initially thought it was going to be about encryption and online retail security, but it seems there's not a lot of economics there, and that particular problem is mostly solved.
