Dear members,

You can read the Infosec Threat
2010<http://www.securelist.com/en/analysis/204792133/Information_Security_Threats_in_the_Second_Quarter_of_2010>.
What i worried is Malaysia are listed as one of the country as Maliciois
Farm. Thanks to Najmi for the info.

*1) Distribution of attacks by country : *Malaysia on 7 place*

2) **Top 20 countries with servers hosting malicious code : *Malaysia on 19
place*

*So we know now our country was listed on this threat. I just thingking why
others country Europe or America Latin not many in the list.* *We can see
many are from ASIA*. *Specially in Malaysia we have others mechanism or a
way to protect it. What we done so far are not enough to prevent it. Now
maybe cause 80% of malaysian now have PC/laptop so the virus/malware also
grow up. And for sure many of Malaysian users use pirate software especially
use Microsoft,Game & Antivirus Software that not many people notice that
pirate software already include malware or virus ready.

We have solution?

1) Use original software!! Specially (Microsoft, Antivirus & Game)
2) Use Open Source Software
3) We need do more awareness & education program in National level.

That my 0.5 cent thinking. Anyone have better idea or suggestion. Pease
share it.
