Malware detections up 100%

Posted on Saturday, December 08 2007 @ 14:16:10 CET by

Security firm F-Secure reports malware detections are up from a quarter-million at the start of this year to half-a-million.
There was a great deal of volume seen during 2007. Malware authors are producing variants in bulk. Genuine innovation appears to be on the decline and is currently being replaced with volume and mass-produced kit malware. But while new techniques weren't developed — the existing techniques were refined and adapted for much greater effectiveness. There are some very dangerous faces in the big crowd.

Windows Vista was on the horizon at the end of 2006 and the question was — would Vista be the end to malware threats? Not this year at least — The year 2007 ends with Windows XP still dominating the world's installed base leaving Vista little opportunity to make an impact. The potential strength of Vista has not yet been tested in full force. And much of the malware in the wild running on XP machines is stronger than ever. We predict that the situation will not change very soon looking at Vista's current sales.
