Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Cancerbusters!

Following yesterday's appeal for Reg readers to lend their computing power to the search for possible cancer cures, we are pleased to announce that membership of the Vulture Central II team in the Intel/Oxford P2P project has jumped from 64 to an impressive 655 in just 36 hours.

So impressed are we at Vulture Central that we're dispatching one of our hacks to Oxford to report back on the boffins at the heart of the project. Look out for that after Easter.

The Vulture Central II current stats are available here. At least, they should be. If you can't log on straight away, be patient.

If you would like to participate in this excellent initiative, you can get your software here. Then sign up with Vulture Central II at http://members.ud.com/services/teams/. ®
