Where ARE the bugs.....?

Bugs and virus are everywhere, they don't know borders or frontiers, we're talking here about the "virtual" but very real ones we find on Computers, Phones and other electronic items,
The material ones are the same, of course, and we inject stuff from the Doctor at an alarming rate to try to deal with them!
The same thing applies to the virtual type. We spend millions and millions every year - it's one of the largest and most profitable businesses' on the Internet - and strangely, we tend to buy them ONLINE, even those amongst us who refuse to buy online!
Have a look here - Protection or not - Worldwide:

The best protected are probably those that need it the most!

In Europe, most of the "rogues" are Russina, Australian or American!

Perhaps the scariest category of security threats is key loggers. As the name suggests, key loggers is tracking every activity on the computer and then storing and transmitting that information

Viruses are the nasty software designed to do harm to your computer. Historically, viruses were written by misguided computer programmers trying to wreak havoc on the world's computers. It takes a certain type of savant to write these nasty programs. Additionally, viruses are typically the most difficult to detect and sometimes close to impossible to remove. We've all had the friend that had to reformat their entire computer due to an advised virus download. It was a shock to see that the US had the highest incidence of virus in the world. Our Aussie friends can feel the safest with the lowest incidence of viruses. They must be doing something right.
How to deal with all this? A matter of luck, really, 
Use your up to date programmes, leave those "oh - so - sexy" sites alone, and check your own AV programme, I once had one (which will remain anonymous) which had rogueware and a Trojan WITHIN the AV programme itself!
Currently I use AVG Free, and (touch wood) I've stayed clear of "nasties"!
Thanks to "Pit" for this report which you can read in full here:
