Beware Windows XP, as 74% of rootkit infections can be traced to PCs running that operating system. By comparison, only 17% of rootkit infections were spotted running on Vista, and 12% on Windows 7.
That finding comes from Avast--a free antivirus software developer based in Prague--and is based on a six-month study the company conducted of 630,000 malware samples encountered by its users.
