This was a pretty interesting read. A lot of people bring me a computer that has some sort of rogue application running on it, or it is infected in some way, and they always ask, "I had (insert name of trusted antivirus software here) installed, shouldn't I be protected?" My answer? AV is important, but they'll always be a step behing the bad guys, and user behavior is a lot more of a factor, in most cases. Here's an article from PCWorld, read, discuss, debate! :)
