THE PEOPLE'S DAILY said a government department estimated 75% of computers in China were the target of viruses between May 2005 to May 2006.

Internet surfing, USB flash drives and portable drives are the major cause, said the newspaper.

Further, 54 per cent of 13,824 sampled have "Internet security problems". The newspaper didn't say whether such problems were anything to do with Microsoft, Yahoo or Google.

Over the weekend a foreign committee of the UK House of Commons slated China and these three companies for "immoral collaboration".

The People's Daily hasn't got its teeth into that one. µ
