In 2009 we witnessed exponential growth in malware proliferation around the world. Over 30,000 new threats hit the wire each day requiring more than 3,500 new malware signatures being released daily by anti-malware companies. 2010 has been no different. In Q1 of 2010 there were over 327 million infection attempts from over 119 million malware hosting servers found on the Internet. According to IBM, the fi rst half of 2010 saw a 36% spike in malware when compared to last year, with more than 10 million new pieces of malware released into "the wild."
