Microsoft Security Intel Report Released

The latest installment of Microsoft's Security Intelligence Report has been released, with a breakdown of threat assessment by country.

Redmond reports that malware was discovered on 7.8 of every 1000 computers scanned in the US, which seems surprisingly low. By comparison, Russia scored a 9.8, while Korea came in at 16.0 per 1000.

Worms and trojans were highlighted as the predominant threats in many of the countries in the report, with password stealers and other trojans/droppers also heavily utilized.

For more details and the full report, check out the Microsoft Security Intelligence Report Volume 8.
