Wow.  Five years since the release of SoBig-A and the point at which the objective of major malware outbreaks switched from malicious damage to commercial exploitation; from data destruction to botnet breeding.

So why is it that I still routinely have to explain to people that it's unlikely that their hard drives will be wiped by some Azerbaijani teenager, but they still need protection against being hijacked?

I know at least one person who just doesn't care: her contribution to spam, DDoSes, etc. is Somebody Else's Problem, apparently.
