The vast majority of these programs have been created in the last twelve months, said Symantec.

No satellite stuff for the moment (aside from a 43cm minidish that was on the house already), Samsung SyncMaster T27B550 Smart TV & Monitor, and a few computers...

Do they include those viruses made in the olden days of computing (70's, 80's, 90's)? :D
