Quote:
Malware protection is far from commodity, with effectiveness ranging between 54% and 90%, a 36% spread

Cybercriminals have between a 10% - 45% chance of getting past your AV with Web Malware (depending on the product)

Cybercriminals have between 25% - 97% chance of compromising your machine using exploits (depending on the product)
