Today the BBC News website has an article titled "Virus writers turn to spam." Viruses via spam doesn't sound like anything new to me, though perhaps viruses have become more prolific with spam.
My Apple Macintosh continues to be a Happy Mac (thus the retro smiley mac you see here). As I'd indicated on a previous post, it's been said that viruses are 625 times more likely on PCs than on Macs. See that post here.
I still run a Windows server though, and have had my share of virus trouble there -- one big episode just over a year ago. I'm crossing my fingers and keeping things up-to-date as much as I can, but IMHO you never can know what Microsoft Windows security vulnerability the malicious-minded will find and target next.
Here's another entry I've made that touches on the topic of Viruses:
