In China, 4 percent to 8 computers contain viruses, and every 1,000 detected computer files contain two to seven viruses, according to the “2011-2012 China Internet Security Research Report” issued recently by Kingsoft Network, a Chinese professional network security producer.

The report counted the probability of detection of computer viruses in China for the first time.

In the past year, computer viruses became much more concealed and the virus action turned to be gray. Malignant viruses decreased while harassing viruses increased, said an expert from the Kingsoft Internet Security.

In 2012, the destructive effect of computer viruses will become less obvious.

However, the attack aiming at mobile Internet will grow fiercer. Considering the direct economic returns from attacking mobile phone systems, the attackers will shift their focus from PC to the mobile phone platform. The Android Operating System will be the first to bear the brunt, according to the analysis from the Kingsoft Internet Security.
