    Great. Going to read it asap.

    This seems very interesting btw:

    (...)SIRv14 also includes a feature analysis titled “Running Unprotected: Measuring the Benefits of Real-time Protection Software.” This story illustrates what the data shows about computers with and without real-time updated antivirus protection. We sliced and studied infection rates by operating system and country to try and calculate the risk users take when running unprotected. You will be able to read more about what we discovered in the SIR, and in the blog: Everyone benefits from antimalware software, released later today.(...)

    Thanks ronjor!

    Have only had a brief look so far. Interesting that Java is 3rd on the Exploit chart behind HTML/JavaScript and Documents, and both shellcode and heapspray, the former of which is especially touted by some here as the greatest evil lurking amongst the Internet landscape are, once again, way down at the bottom. Heck even Adobe Flash is in their company :blink:
