There was once a time when Windows computers were notorious for being infected with viruses, spyware and malware.
Internet security companies pumped out solutions as quickly as new threats emerged, while Microsoft tried as hard as it could to release software updates and patches to close off alarming vulnerabilities in its software.
With a significantly safer OS and tighter code, Windows 7 and now Windows 8 computers are running more smoothly than ever.
But a new security landscape is emerging. It’s one where the threats are as nimble and elusive as the devices on which they run.
