Over 200.000 viruses and other malicious programs detected

12 September 2005

F-Prot Antivirus recently crossed an important threshold with the number of viruses, worms, trojans and other malicious programs reaching and passing 200.000!

It is less than 2 years since FRISK Software celebrated reaching the 100.000 mark. The fact that the milestone of 200.000 pieces of malware detected has already been achieved is a testament both to the diligence of FRISK Software virus experts and to the speed at which viruses, worms and other computer security threats are appearing. This rapidly accelerating speed of production, with hundreds of new variants now appearing daily, has resulted in dramatic changes in the modern computing environment; not only in the way we must behave online and how we must deal with unwanted e-mail but also in the heightened necessity, for every user, for the protection provided by a firewall and high-quality, light-weight antivirus software.

Due to the dogged persistence of our virus specialists and our programming teams, FRISK Software has managed not only to consistently maintain F-Prot Antivirus's position at the forefront of antivirus protection, but has forged ahead of many in the speed at which customers can receive protection against new and emerging threats.

While we celebrate this milestone in the development of F-Prot Antivirus and the service we provide our customers, we are acutely aware of the significance of the changed security environment to which this is a reaction. We at FRISK Software look forward to continuing to provide the highest possible quality protection against malware, with some of the lowest prices and lowest resource consumptions around.
