Malware Exceeds Meatspace Pathogens


Symantec’s count of 317 million new malware variants in 2014 handily exceeds the 3.6 million estimated total viruses that afflict vertebrate animals, and even exceeds the 100 million estimated viruses when hosts are expanded to include invertebrates, plants, lichens, mushrooms, and brown algae. Including bacteria along with viruses adds less than another 10 million pathogens. By this measure, humans have created more adversity for themselves than nature has, even without wars, despots, nuclear weapons, or terrorism.
