A couple of days ago McAfee launched a real time map of the spread of computer virus. The map shows the globe with each country or continent colored according to the number of infected machines in that area. It also provides a list of the top ten most widespread virus. Data is collected from the thousands of private and corporate installations of McAfee's antiviral programs and gives an overview of the propagation of computer virus, perhaps making it possible to make forecasts of epidemics.
