Security experts despair

Half of Aussies don't have a virus checker
Top cop down-under, Tony Negus, is apparently tearing his hair out that the great unwashed are so dumb when it comes to cyber crime. Negus said cyber criminals were so sophisticated and the great unwashed were difficult to protect.

This is because most of them cannot be bothered to install the most basic of security. He said that less than 50 per cent of Australians even have anti-virus software which makes his job incredibly hard.

A global taskforce had been established, which included the Australian Federal Police and representatives of the United States and Britain, to work out modes of collaboration and partnership. 

Of course this does not matter if most Australians don't run firewalls or virus scanners, or are Apple users who think they are invulnerable.
