Malware programs reach an all-time high

According to the BBC security firms are reporting an unprecedented high for malicious programs found in 2007.
Estimates suggest that there has been a staggering FIVE fold increase in malicious programs in circulation in 2007 compared with 2006 (5.5 million reported up from 972,000).

As usual, our advice would be to remain vigilant and now the need to do so is even more important. We would also recommend taking the following precautions:

  • Update your software and most importantly Windows
  • Ensure your virus software has the latest virus definitions and your up to date
  • Set up a firewall (either a hardware firewall or software through Windows)
  • Keep regular backups of your data
