Where Did All The Viruses Go?
from the gone-gone-gone dept
Reuters is reporting that the number of new computer viruses is way down this year, and no one is quite sure why. The theories range from better anti-virus software (so the AV guys would like you to believe) to corporations being more careful about protecting themselves from viruses to the idea that some virus writers may be scared off by new laws that could put them in jail. I guess it would probably be naive to think that maybe virus writers became slightly more enlightened to the fact that what they do annoys the hell out of most people.
