Antivirus software 'must be compulsory'

Laptop - Fraud jumped by a quarter last year in Britain to more than £755m - SantanderCB

Financial Fraud Action UK has reported that losses due to technology-based fraud jumped by a quarter last year in Britain to more than £755m. Sums stolen through internet and telephone banking fraud increased by 72% to £168.6m last year, while losses on payment cards rose by 18% to £567.5m, amounting to 8.3p in every £100 spent using them. The organisation warned the public that malware attacks and data breaches were becoming more sophisticated and that the number of impersonation and deception scams was growing. Commander Chris Greany, head of the economic crime unit at City of London Police, said manufacturers should pre-install the same standard of security software on every new PC and laptop.
