Think You Are Seeing More Malware? You're Right

Windows PC users may think they are seeing more malware beating upon their computers - and they would be right. According to a new report from Av-test.org, there was more malware found over the last 2 years than the last 10 combined. It's not a pretty picture for Mr and Mrs computer user.
Other malware watchers, such as security-software makers Malwarebytes and Kaspersky, have noticed similar trends.

Kaspersky saw four times more mobile malware attacks in 2014 than the year before, said Patrick Nielsen, a researcher with the company.

For years, antivirus software blocked malware based on the malicious software's code. But would-be hackers found a way around that: They can buy or freely download malware code; then change just a few pieces of it. Suddenly, the code is invisible to the antivirus programs, and free to wreak havoc.
