Out of the 24 participating countries, Canada ranked as the 7th least protected country.

Key findings from the study include:

  • Eighty-three (83) per cent of global PC owners have working basic security protection
  • Seventeen (17) per cent of PCs scanned had no anti-virus installed or it was expired
  • Canada is the 7th least protected country, with 17.9 per cent of consumers browsing the Internet without any protection:
    • of this group of users, 9.48 per cent of consumers have no protection installed
    • and 8.45 per cent of consumers have installed but disabled security, placing the country in the number two spot for this category behind Singapore

PRESS RELEASE

Consumer Alert:  McAfee Finds One in Every Six Personal Computers Have Zero Protection; Canada is 7th Least Protected Country; 17% of the World’s Personal Computers Are Unprotected

MARKHAM, Ontario, May 30, 2011 – Lack of consumer PC protection is a global problem.  McAfee, the world’s largest dedicated security technology company, today revealed findings from a global study set out to determine the percentage of personal computer owners without any working protection. In a study that analyzed data from voluntary scans of an average of 27-28 million computers per month, McAfee researchers found 17 per cent of the world is browsing the Internet completely unprotected.1  Out of the 24 participating countries, Canada was found to be the 7th least protected country while the United States landed in the top 5.

Browsing the Internet on an exposed computer not only increases the risk of identity theft and data loss, but it can contribute to the spread of harmful programs and nasty viruses. Even if you think your personal computer has basic protection installed, it is important to make sure your security software stays up-to-date. Research also found many of the scanned computers have disabled or expired software. In Canada, 8.45 per cent of consumers have installed, but disabled, security software. In comparison, 7.07 per cent of the United States has disabled security software installed on their computers.

ILOTT Vintage Rangefinder Cameras

Wed May 30, 2012

ILOTT Vintage takes beautifully engineered rangefinder film cameras, carefully and lovingly restores them, then takes them out on assignment. A distinctive feature is the replacement of worn-out leather with premium quality wood veneers tailored to each camera for a unique, elegant appearance. So far, they have restored: Argus C3, Canonet, Canonet QL17, Minolta Hi-Matic 9, Konica Auto S2, and Minolta Hi-Matic 7/7s. Pictured is the beautiful Canonet QL17 — which we are hoping Canon would take inspiration from when it introduces its compact mirrorless.

Visit our Featured Site: ILOTT Vintage to admire these restored rangefinder cameras and the pictures taken with them.
