MyCERT Abuse Statistic

Based on the report, I don't know how things are categorized, can someone shade some lights?

http://www.mycert.org/abuse-stat/index.html

It seriously looks confusing isn't it, hack threat, malicious codes, harassment, intrusion? Do you consider network scanning as hack threat or harassment, and malicious codes itself can't abuse unless it is used by party with purpose or intention.

Can each category be defined in more transparency and clearer sense?

I'm not drunken master when I'm writing this. MyCERT, please rethink about it, I know you can do better than that!

Cheers :]
