Next Monday is virus attack day


November 19, 2008

Internet security experts warn anyone using the internet next Monday, that this day is believed to be the worst day of the year for computer attacks.

These experts have been looking into the data collected from viruses and worms that have been found on nearly half a million computers from all around the world.

This data has been studied and it seems that everything points to the 24th November as being the peak day for these computer attacks.

It is no accident that this date has been chosen by the cyber criminals, as this is when the online Christmas shopping traditionally starts and all those credit card and other financial details are an opportunity too good to miss.

All internet users should stay vigilant and if they have it, make sure that anti virus and anti malware protection is switched on.
