2008 - The year of malware

According to PandaLabs (Spanish security vendor), in 2008 they saw an average of 35,000 malware samples a day, 22,000 of those being new samples.

Another dire bit of news reported by PandaLabs is the growth of "fake" antivirus which they estimate generates over $13 million a month for hackers.
