Stolen information can be exploited immediately through pirated software by identity thieves.

But we should think whether we are really using the same. Without writing multi-threaded and parallel programming there is no point in increasing the amount of silicon cores speed which is being provided by Intel and AMD processors.

I was talking with some of the key developers and most of the people are very reluctant to write a multithreaded code either due to the complexity involved in it or due to the client pressure in terms of case industry. One person was saying that it is not easily understandable by clients and so we are not going for the same and this answer is not giving me a justice as a software engineer.
