What people don’t know about computer security is hilarious – yet scary

Some of you may remember when one of the more popular tech related YouTube videos floating around was what people thought the web browser or the fact that Google was the Internet. Well taking that idea of going to the street one step further the folks at F-Secure went out into the streets of San Francisco to see what the “average person” knew about malware.

Just as with the browser video the responses, and general lack of understanding, comes as no surprise. While some of the responses are funny the over all response to the questions is pretty scary and shows why malware succeeds the way it does.
