Computer security firm McAfee has issued its latest Threat Report for the first quarter of 2009, in which they reveal some interesting figures about the growing number of botnets and ll in all, cybercriminals have hijacked 12 million new computers since January with an array of new malware. Interestingly, the Conficker worm, which grabbed mainstream media attention in recent weeks, is not a major factor in the bot infection count, with only about one percent of all virus detections in the first quarter of 2009.
