Symantec Report Drives up Fear in PC Users

Symantec : 13 November, 2009  (Technical Article)
With suggestions of 90 percent spam hitting our inboxes, legitimate security software download sites are seeing sales flourish
Security fears worsened this week for UK PC users, as a Symantec report suggested that 90 per cent of all emails sent contain spam or phishing. The first iPhone worm was also identified this week, and existing PC worms like Conficker continue to make press for the damage they can wreak on computers.

For the best defence against this malware, PC users have been advised to buy software from legitimate sources and to protect their PCs with security programmes, including anti-viral software applications.

Dirk Lebzien, Vice President of Softwareload said: 'It wouldn't be surprising if many PC users feel under attack in light of the security fears out there. But there are simple measures users can take to protect themselves. Legitimate, trustworthy software download sites provide a safe shopping experience for applications in a range of computing areas. You can also purchase security applications such as G Data, Web Root and Dr Web, and download them directly from such site, protecting your computer immediately.'
