Virus attacks up 50 per cent
The number of virus attacks on enterprises increased by half between 2003 and 2004, according to ICSA Labs, an independent division of internet security company Cybertrust.
ICSA’s research was sponsored by a number of companies, including McAfee, Microsoft, Sophos and Trend Micro. Research was based on data gathered from 300 companies and organisations and found that the virus encounter rate increased 50% last year to 392 encounters per 1,000 machines per month.
