Fighting the worms of mass destruction

In a rare burst of journalistic research, the Economist has a good article on the state of viruses and similar security threats.

It downplays terrorism, up-plays phishing, agrees that Microsoft is a monoculture, but disagrees with any conclusions promoted.

Even better, the Economist goes on to be quite perceptive about the future of anonymity, psuedonymity, and how to protect privacy. It's almost as if they did their homework! Well done, and definitely worth reading.
