Anti Virus Vendors say Busy October (Mine's bigger than yours)

"Sophos ... protects against a total of 112,142 viruses, an increase of 1,685 on September." ~ theregister

Apparently Oct was the busiest month ever in number of new viruses. (Why is every new strain called a virus anyway? Is it a dick comparison game?)

Both my home and work PCs have had a very quiet virus October. So what are they on about?

So what are they on about?

Its called PR, spin, getting links...

A search on Google News gives 711 references on Google News to Sophos, so I guess thier PR people are doing a good job.

To put 711 news references in perspective, Threadwatch has 25 there.
