Security is futile!

Surrender now! All your base are belong to us. Exterminate! Exterminate!

Well, that’s probably not what Cisco’s chief security officer John Stewart meant when he told attendees at an Australian security conference that malware is growing so fast that, “If patching and antivirus is where I spend my money, and I’m still getting infected and I still have to clean up computers and I still need to reload them and still have to recover the user’s data and I still have to reinstall it, the entire cost equation of that is a waste. It’s completely wasted money.”

On second thought, maybe that is what Stewart meant!
