Instead we should all learn to get used to updating – ‘patching’ – our operating systems as part of our digital hygiene, Hogan says. ‘I think there is responsibility on both sides; patching is a fact of life. ’ Yet if the need for robust anti-malware security seems stronger than ever, the antivirus (AV) industry is not without its critics. Ever since the lucrative emergence of AV software in the 1980s there have been dark mutterings that the industry may, on occasions, have been behind some viruses itself.

The same he says was true for viruses such as Rugrat, discovered in May 2004, which affected computers using 64-bit chips in their 51 Cyber Book 2/2/05 10:45 am Page 52 Cyber Alert processors rather than the current standard of 32-bit chips. ‘We don’t wait for something to happen, we prepare for it; with the 64-bit viruses we had looked into what might happen two years before Rugrat came out,’ says Hogan. ‘And when I say we investigate that does not mean we look for vulnerabilities. ’ Hogan and his team say there is typically a two-year gap between the time that new technology appears and someone produces a new virus or worm to attack it.
