First time in a German news

After writing the article in the Avira Techblog, Dirk Knopp, Avira’s Technical Editor, showed me the link below:

There is an omission, I hope not intentional:
I wrote in the blog:

Our statistics show that 14.43% from the Phishing and 15.04% from the Malware URLs (for which we have geo IP information)

The article above didn’t bother about this “small” detail and didn’t translate it.

(for which we have geo IP information)

Why is this important ?

Simply because we don’t have WHOIS Information for all threats !
If we would have made the statistics for all the URLs, the numbers might have been a lot more smaller.
