Malware plague hits 40 per cent of firms

From Vnunet:

Nearly half of companies globally have suffered a business disruption owing to malware, according to Webroot Software’s latest State of Internet Security report.

The organised nature, rapid growth and severity of cyber-crime has pushed it to the FBI’s number three priority behind counter-terrorism and counter-intelligence.

Webroot’s research discovered that 4.2 million, or 1.7 per cent, of 250 million URLs around the world harbour malware. Almost three million of these malicious sites were discovered in 2006 alone.
