I know – I was supposed to continue on with day two of exploring beautiful Nova Scotia, but I just caught this fine edition of Networking Notes with Michael Hall. While I promise to write about Fort Ann and the amazing Historical gardens tomorrow, you should definitely stop by PracticallyNetworked and give this article a read. Hall presents an excellent view on the media focusing on the “sensational effects of malware“.
“‘But even with numbers like that, it seems mainstream reporting still generally focuses on the sensational. Security companies report worms, viruses and variants numbering in the thousands every year, but it takes the occasional oddball, like the overhyped “ransomware” outbreaks, to get any attention.”
