QOTD - Liston on Malware Persistence

Tom Liston, senior security consultant & malware analyst for Inguardians, comments about a study from TrendMicro which found that 50% of infected machines remain infected 10 months later (the malware does not bring attention to itself):
Well, duh! I don't find this surprising in the least. Anymore, malware has a business model... and nothing interferes with that model more than having your malware *removed*.
