Microsoft: Virus is rampant due to the Windows pirated
Microsoft claims there is a close relationship between the use of pirated Windows with high levels of such malicious programs attack the virus. Widespread attack because of not using pirated Windows security patches.
Is Jeff Williams, manager at the Microsoft Malware Protection Center, which claims it is. He argued that because of the possibility of pirated software do not get security updates from Microsoft, the software becomes vulnerable to viruses and ambushed other malicious programs.
He explained that the software piracy rate in China for example, four times higher than in the United States. And it turned out, the use of Windows Update in China were also lower than in the U.S. so that malware attacks vulnerable computer descend on the Bamboo Curtain country.
But there are irregularities in this claim. Because if so many computers in countries with high piracy rates such as China hit by malware, the U.S. should have a computer at a low level of plows relatively free from malicious programs. But no such fact.
In fact, as reported by TheInquirer, the level of malware attacks in the country instead of China is relatively low, namely 6.7 per thousand units of computers.
However, there are examples of countries that match the argument Williams, for example in Brazil and Serbia Montenegro. Brazil is also a high software piracy has a malware infection rate 25.4 per thousand units of computers, three times the rate of global average.
Meanwhile, in Serbia Montenegro, the infection rate is the highest in the world, ie, 97.2 units per thousand computers were reported hit by malware.
