 Home users suffer web worm woe

  

BBC News is one of the numerous sites with articles about MSBlast. One thing struck me, in this one: As an experiment security firm F-Secure put an unprotected PC on the net to see how quickly it would be infected.

Early on Tuesday it took about five minutes 30 seconds before the machine was found and infected. But by 3pm the same PC was being found and infected in 27 seconds.

27 seconds! Wow, I'm glad I use exclusively Macs, and the company I work for too!

The good thing is that each new worm draws more people to switch from PC to Mac (like my friend and former co-worker Jim's dad).
