Buckley, Washington is a small community that had no reported murders in 100 years. That record was broken in February, 2007. Just because something hasn't occurred yet doesn't mean it won't occur.

I recall in the late 90s battling the Autostart worm on OS 8 systems. This little bug moved from computer to computer through the CD autostart capability. Days would be spent trying to eradicate it, only to have one infected file opened and the system would be infected again in a matter of hours.

If you choose to use an antivirus program or if you choose not to, fine. That's up to you. There's no evidence, no reason to believe at all, that we will never be the victim of another virus attack. It'll probably happen. It's just a matter of time. Like the residents of Buckley, although we can still walk the streets and feel safe for the most part, we should no longer take our security for granted.
