    Where are they getting that and what does it actually mean?

    We detected Windows servers with viruses scanning our computers, looking for a way to infect our machines but they were unsuccessful?

    You can say that again. i've noticed that every single time people have a problem with their computers that they can't explain, they call it a virus. People are do damn ignorant!! :mad:

    People are too much in a hurry to blame viruses for sudden problems with their software / computer.

    "oh, it must be a virus then".

    Windows users are worse - a good proportion refuse to accept that OSX has no viruses in the wild... "But, it must have viruses"...

    >8 percent of Mac users reported a spyware infection in the last six months vs. 54 percent of Windows PC users.

    What spyware? Any one know of OSX spyware? anyone....
