Hmmm... Interesting stuff. I also noted the report says "The number of
viruses exploiting known vulnerabilities to infect or spread grew from 36 to
50 in 2003" and notes that 28 of these exploit MS01-020. My research, which
I thought was incomplete, shows 160 viruses exploiting known
vulnerabilities, 54 of which exploit MS01-020.
So much for statistics. :-)

For example, according to new research conducted by Hughes, 45% of the free
collected via KaZaA, the most popular program for downloading free files and
viruses, Trojan horse programs and backdoors.
According to new research, fully 45% of the free files collected via KaZaA,
popular program for downloading free files and music, contained virus,
programas, or backdoors.
Exists documentation of the research?
Can you comment something to me on the used methodology?
