Submission + - Number of Malware Attacks Up by 71% ( 1

FishRep writes: Hi-tech criminals are racking up more than 100 attacks per second on the world's computers, according to an annual report by Symantec. The number of malware (malicious software) samples that Symantec saw in 2009 was 71% higher than in 2008. This meant, said Symantec, that 51% of all the viruses, trojans and other malicious programs it has ever seen were logged during 2009. In total, Symantec identified almost 2.9 million items of malicious code during that 12 month period.

The steep rise in malware was driven largely by the growing popularity of easy to use toolkits that novice cyber-criminals are using to turn out their own malware, said Tony Osborn, a technology manager for the public sector at Symantec. Some of the kits were available for free, said Mr Osborn but others cost a lot of money. One, called Zeus, was available for around $700 and many had become so successful that their creators now offer telephone support for those who cannot get them to work.
