Another interesting result from them should be 84 percent of emails from Malaysia are classified as spam, I'm really curious of how they are able to identify this portion as there's no perfect solution to identify or classify email with unsolicited intentions. Plus they are actually setting up decoy emails(honeypot alike) for this kind of identification which I don't think it can be any accurate.
"This and the high number of zombie machines in Malaysia is tarnishing the country's image". This is way too much of emphasizes, they are playing a big blames on the users, and most of the users not even know what is happening out there. They are just using the internet for surfing, doing some transactions and so forth.
"It said copies of pirated software sometimes contained trojans and other hidden malicious programs, and these are surreptitiously planted into computer systems when users installed the software". This is not the case, in my opinion as most of the users in Malaysia are using pirated softwares, it leads to a more of vulnerabilities in the applications softwares and operating systems itself as they can't patch it since they are not using the licensed or commercial version. That's what most malicious attackers targeting over the networks instead of just distribute it via the softwares/pirated CD that they buy which is more of blind attacks.
"Computer users should also be careful about disclosing confidential, personal or financial information online unless they know that the request for such is legitimate, cautioned Symantec". I doubt users will listen to this, this reminds me the presentation from Mikko - Education usually won't work.
Enough rant for now, thanks to Symantec for doing this kind of survey.
