  1. In your current report, you assert that ~32% of all pc’s were infected with malware during 2012.

    How did you arriive at this number?

    I assume that this is an “incidence” – i.e. – at some point in 2012, ~32% were infected, not a “prevalence” – i.e. – ~32% are infected right now.

      Hi Patrick,

      Yes, you are right: out of all the different computers scanned using our free online scanner Panda ActiveScan, a 32% of them had some malware running when they were scanned.

      Best regards,
