It's remarkable that it took 18 years for our database to reach 100,000 malicious threats, and just under two years to double to 200,000," said Stuart McClure, senior vice president of research and threats, in a statement. "Hackers are releasing threats faster than ever before, with 200 percent more malicious threats per day than two years ago." McAfee added the 100,000th threat to its database in September 2004.
