The Intel owned security giant McAfee has published a study report about security lacking in personal computers worldwide. The report is the result of an study conducted on 28 million computers in 24 countries. The report says that globally 17 percent of PC users don’t use any protection against viruses, worms, spywares or malwares. These users either don’t use any security solutions or they have disabled installed security software. The report also estimates that 27% of digital files stored in these machines would be impossible to restore at all if lost, with an approximate average value is $10,014.

McAfee notes down that globally average figure for unsecured PCs to be one in every six users. Among the countries where the study was conducted Finland seems to be most conscious about online security. Only 9.7 percent of PCs had no security software installed at all in Finland. In contrast, Singapore is most vulnerable with 21.75 percent unprotected PCs. The U.S. is also among the top five least-protected countries with 19.32 percent unprotected PC users.

“With 17 percent of the world walking around naked on the internet, it is critical that consumers update their virus protection before it’s too late”, McAfee co-president Todd Gebhart said in a statement.

The report is alarming. Some says that the unprotected users are just not knowledgeable enough to understand the risks. But others are saying that those users might also be skeptical about the effectiveness of the security solutions.
