Just to give you an idea. My Kaspersky KIS shows this many definitions:
  • Malware..... 4181006
  • Phishing Sites..... 132034
  • Malicious scripts..... 21017
This is just one vendor, and one application. I didn't add Malwarebytes definitions or SuperAntiSpywares. Suffice it to say it's multi millions. And increasing by the thousands if not hundreds of thousands daily.

The Internet is so big, so powerful and pointless that for some people it is a complete substitute for life.
