Germany named Europe's top computer virus culprit
Published: 20 Apr 10 11:34 CET

Germany hung onto its dubious title as Europe’s leader in spreading computer viruses in 2009, though its share of malicious activity in the region dropped slightly, a survey has found.

Some 12 percent of malicious software circulating in Europe, the Middle East and Africa in 2009 was deliberately spread via computers in Germany, the study by anti-virus software firm Symantec found. That compared with 9 percent from Britain and 8 percent from Russia.

The figures come from the annual Symantec Internet Security Threat Report, which includes regional figures that group together Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA).

Hi there
I thought Russia and Holland were the "Usual" biggest suspects and Germans were the "most law abiding".

The French are too disorganised usually to have any statistics so I don't know what originates in France.


Interesting

Cheers
