‘The State of Internet in India’ report, which was released recently, states that Delhi reported the maximum number of PC malware infections in 2014 (20 per cent).
- The national capital emerged as the most vulnerable city to cyber attacks in the country, as more and more people accessed the Internet either through desktop or mobile phones. This increases risk as it makes it easier for hackers to get into the system.
Important observations made by the Report:
- The report states that after Delhi the maximum number of PC malware infections in 2014 were reported in Hyderabad followed by Chandigarh (9 per cent each), and Chennai (7 per cent).
- Delhi NCR led the list for the maximum number of mobile infections too at 24%. It was followed by Mumbai (22 per cent), Chandigarh (10 per cent), Chennai (8 per cent) and Hyderabad (7 per cent).
