Read onAccording to a Symantec study, Germany is becoming the biggest disseminator of malware in Europe. The study shows that 12% of the malware circulating in Europe in 2009 was being actively disseminated by German computers, making it number one in the field, ahead of the UK (9%) and Russia (8%). Germany also leads the field in botnets, largely used for sending huge volumes of spam, where it has a 14% share of the worldwide total.
