ScanSafe reports drop in computer viruses in September
Cisco Systems plans to buy a Web-based security software company called ScanSafe, marking the third announced acquisition this month.
New service to scan Web traffic for viruses, spyware and adware is slated to be available in the third quarter.
Gumblar Web attack adds new domains, steals data, and continues to propagate after infections are cleaned up, making it worse than Conficker, ScanSafe says.
ScanSafe says the energy sector is the most exposed industry to Web-based malware, while the aviation and automotive industry is least exposed.
