What mickeysoft is saying is that its cheaper and faster for companies to just wipe a drive and start over than it is to remove malware. Also, many companies dont have people trained in the removal of such malware.
Like the one organization cited where they had 2,000 client computers infected with some form of malware, its faster (read cheaper) to just ghost those systems and start over than it would be to send a tech to each one and remove the malware. 20 mins is all it takes to ghost a system and it can be done remotely.
The sky is indeed not falling.

I only did a reformat after malware today. I actually got rid of the malware thanks to that lovely prog HJT and trojanhunter, pfft dont know what all the fuss with this malware lark is its easy. But i reformatted as i have picked up a million and one gremlins over the year and i reformat annually usually.
So now im rejoicing in my squeeky clean PC free of all my little progs that do absolutely nothing.
