With so many identified threats, at first I thought this was a case of someone using scareware software; you know, the kind that tells you that your computer is infected with a kajillion viruses then asks for ten easy payments of $9.95 to remove the malware. However, as it turns out, the above is not a screenshot of a scareware program but rather is a screenshot of a scan run by Hitman Pro — a legitimate anti-malware program. In other words, this computer is indeed infected with over 200,000 malware.
