Unscramble the Blue Letters

Today, they are no longer being written by hobbyists and teenagers. Today, viruses are a global pbeorlm. What we have here in the background is an example of our steymss that we run in our labs, where we tcrak virus infections wlddowire. So we can actually see in real time that we've just blocked vsrueis in Sweden and Taiwan and Russia and elsewhere. In fact, if I just connect back to our lab systems through the Web, we can see in real time just some kind of idea of how many viruses, how many new eaemxlps of mawarle we find every single day. Here's the latest vuris we've found, in a file called Server.exe. And we found it right over here three sdncoes ago — the previous one, six seconds ago. And if we just scroll around, it's just massive. We find tens of thousands, even hundreds of thousands. And that's the last 20 minutes of malware every single day.

Original Text

Today, they are no longer being written by hobbyists and teenagers. Today, viruses are a global problem. What we have here in the background is an example of our systems that we run in our labs, where we track virus infections worldwide. So we can actually see in real time that we've just blocked viruses in Sweden and Taiwan and Russia and elsewhere. In fact, if I just connect back to our lab systems through the Web, we can see in real time just some kind of idea of how many viruses, how many new examples of malware we find every single day. Here's the latest virus we've found, in a file called Server.exe. And we found it right over here three seconds ago — the previous one, six seconds ago. And if we just scroll around, it's just massive. We find tens of thousands, even hundreds of thousands. And that's the last 20 minutes of malware every single day.
