Paranoia Acting Up or Just Being Reasonable?

I am still reading "Geekonomics" and - honestly! - I cannot handle more than 10-20 pages at a time since I develop a rage and start looking for a software developer to kill :-) If you need a reminder about how fragile the foundations of our civilization are, go read the book!

So, is there any public bodycount of people killed by bad (low quality OR insecure) software? All those robot gun victims, runaway robot trans, PC-controlled radiation therapy equipment? It's got to be in the hundreds by now... I thought RISKS list was doing it, but I can't find it.
