Malware (malicious software) threatening home PCs is expected to increase by 132% over the coming year. This is one of the key findings of an international CA mid year Internet Threat Outlook Report, based on data from a global team of malware researchers.

According to the latest report by the IT management software company, 3% of malware threats from January 2007 to June 2007 were Trojans, 18% were worms, 4% were viruses, and 13% were other types of malware.
