    This study includes only "socially-engineered malware." Drive-by downloads are not included in the study.

    An earlier installment of the study was discussed here.

    85%?!?!? wow, that's pretty extreme. Now if Opera could implement Microsoft SmartScreen I'd be happy... we can all dream right..?

    To be fair I'd like to see *any* kind of malware filtering in Opera, would be a nice feature to an already great browser.
