Spotlight on Cyber-crime

Ever wanted to know a bit more about cyber-crime and cyber-criminals? PandaLabs, Panda Security’s anti-malware laboratory has recently published an infographic which offers us some useful insights into this criminal activity and presents some interesting facts.

 
Did you know, for example, that more than 31% of computers worldwide are infected with malware?
Predictably, too, the squeaky clean Swiss top the list of countries with the least infections as opposed to South Korea which seems to be experiencing the most infections. Naturally,and NOT coincidentally, the least infected countries are also those that tend to be the most technologically advanced!

 
The android mobile platform remains vulnerable to attack as do social networks which attract criminals intent on stealing personal information. Smug Mac users, too, should lift their heads out of the sand and recognise that they are no longer exempt from attacks. Not too long ago, the Flashback Trojan successfully infiltrated 600 000 Macs.
Fortunately, Panda Security is on hand to help you protect your system. It’s imperative always to have an up-to-date antivirus program in place and to ensure that your operating system and software are always kept up to date.
