Brewing up a STORM

I wrote recently about the storm worm that was doing the rounds. According to recent reports it has now infected 1.6 million PC’s, making it one of the most widespread infections experienced to date.

The main victims so far have been home users, and that trend is likely to continue as corporate spam-filters, virus protection and firewall solutions continue to ensure most businesses are safe.

In truth there’s no excuse for people getting infected with this as the technology is well able to deal with it. The real danger is those pople who haven’t implemented or maintained the proper security solutions and practices. Sadly, there are plenty of those type of potential victims out there, so we probably haven’t seen the last of this storm.
