Malware Infected About Half A Million Computers In Just Seven Days!
On http://www.buzzle.com/articles/194622.html I learned that in just seven days, about half a million computers were infected with malware. This event occured becuase in just seven days, there were more than 530,000 instances of booby-trapped files and this program worked by posing as ordinary media downloads such as downloading movies, videos and songs. A lot of victims were tricked by these programs and they infected technolgy users computer's with a invisible program. "Toralv Dirro, a security strategist at McAfee's Avert Labs, said it was the most successful piece of malicious code in three years - but that things could have been much worse." The type of malware used for this program was the Trojan Horse which infected half a million computers in seven days.
