Dramatic Increase in the number of malware variants...

Reading some of the details in Panda Labs' Annual Report for 2009 and came across these statistics...the math is pretty crazy...

Panda says that they have 40 million variants of malware in their database, collected over 20 years of business.
They indicate that they are collecting 55,000 variants a day.
If you do the math, that means that in the past 365 days, they collected 20 million variants.

So in one year, they collected as many variants of malware, as they have collected in the entire span of their business.

Neato.  Somebody has been busy.
