Doesn't surprise me one bit especially when companies let employees surf the web, or unknowingly have employees surfing the web. The bank my mom works for uses Internet Explorer to run all sorts of stuff built to run in IE, I cringed when she told me that.

Especially when nobody gets infected by viruses anymore; it's all about spyware (which antivirus apps do nothing for).

malware is now becoming a major problem simply because many users don't know what it is or how to stop it. And in reality its fairly easy to stop and prevent.
