Is my paranoia valid?
A few months ago I stumbled across this site looking for antivirus information. Now I try to visit the site daily because of other security issues, but my primary interest is antivirus. (I guess thats the territory when your the AV guy)
Anyways, August was the most busy month for virii ever, SobigF was slamming everyone like crazy, Minmail and a whole host of other virii all at the same time.
Now its been quiet for almost a month now. While there has been a few more come out, nothing like the slamming of having been attacked by several large virii, and many spinoffs. Does this mean that something bigger is in the works? Or are the average users getting wise to computer security and AV in general making these not so bad?
Has anyone else began to wonder??
