Internet Security - Not important for half of all users

A item on the BBC News web site indicates that just over half of all internet users think that protecting their personal information is not their job.

I don't think that they are deliberatly being perverse and more a case of people not knowing any better as no-one has ever explained the issues to them. I guess the 52% of people are probably also the people who don't have PC's locked down with the latest anti virus, anti spyware and firewalls installed and therefore most likely to have a trojan or rootware somewhere on their system.

Wired magazine has a scary article on how zombie networks were used to cripple an anti spam service
