Over 150 new virus each month ?

Posted on Aug 9, 2002

From Alec Muffett:

Neil Cowie, senior virus researcher at the McAfee lab, said it was now seeing between 150 and 200 new viruses per month. In total there are more than 30,000 documented viruses.

Those numbers don't seem credible. 150 new virus in a month means that we average about 5 each day. Funny that Neil Cowie works for a company that sells virus software...
