Broadband PCs attacked over 100 times a day

The study by NetSafe and IBM New Zealand to mark International Computer Security Day tomorrow shows computers connected to the internet in New Zealand were targeted more than a hundred times a day by a variety of worms, viruses, trojans and hackers.

The study examined the type and frequency of threats exposed to a computer accessing popular websites via a broadband connection.

The threats were monitored by intrusion detection software running on a computer equipped with an updated firewall and operating system that automatically downloads system updates and security patches. Broadband PCs attacked over 100 times a day
