Survey Finds Consumers Balk at Updating Malware Protection

“Overall, the research shows that many consumers have a false sense of security while online,” ESET Chief Research Officer Andrew Lee said in a statement. “With the number of zero-day threats rapidly increasing, users need to be even more cautious and proactive in their own.

While nearly 90 percent of computer users have software on their machines to protect them from malware like viruses, Trojans, worms and spyware, almost two-thirds of those users are reluctant to upgrade the software after it’s installed.

That was the finding in a survey released Monday by security software maker ESET, of San Diego.
