Most people are aware of the need to secure themselves and their PCs, Macs or mobile devices, particularly when going online. However cybercrime is evolving at such a fast rate, and new forms are being detected each year. It’s bad enough that 40% of online adults aren’t aware that malware are capable of executing themselves discreetly, but what’s even more troubling is that 55% aren’t even sure if their systems are free of any viruses.
