30% of European computers got a virus in the Q2 2010

This figure probably doesn't surprise a lot of people but for some it's a big shock. And when considering that most of them were already running AV software, are we living with a feeling of false security?

Many users remain infected with computer malware – despite the fact that the vast majority are running machines protected by anti-virus software.

A study by European Union statistics agency EUROSTAT found that one third of PC users (31 per cent) had the pox even though the vast majority (84 per cent) were running security software (anti-virus, anti-spam, firewall) on their PCs. Of the survey's respondents, 3 per cent reported financial loss as a result of farming or phishing attacks, while a further 4 per cent reported privacy violations involving data sent online.
