Vietnam: 95% of Its PCs Infected With Viruses

From Dark Reading:

Is Vietnam the next haven for cybercrime? The country is apparently facing a major Internet security crisis, with some 95% of its PCs infected with viruses and 40% of its stock brokerages vulnerable to attack, according to officials there.

Ah, the minefield that is the Internet. I'd wager that there's a lot more stories like this yet to be told. It doesn't take much imagination to visualize global computing as the byzantine and surreal agglomeration of sputtering and wheezing PCs, servers and mainframes that it is.

We can't have anything nice.
