Cost of malware soars to over $169 billion in 2004

A post on vnunet.com puts the cost of malware last year at about $300 per Windows-based computer.

"Malware, including viruses, worms and Trojans, cost global businesses between $169bn and $204bn last year, making it the worst year on record by a wide margin, newly published research has claimed. According to digital risk management firm mi2g, malware in 2003 did not account for even half of the economic damage sustained in 2004."
