Why malware statistics don't matter

Why malware statistics don't matter

I'm distrustful of statistics. I tend to look at much of the statistics that I'm exposed to on a daily basis as data repackaged and re-purposed (weaponized if you like) with a particular agenda (the warhead). This isn't to say that all statistics are bogus, but when you combine differing agendas with an overall lack of understanding of the subject, nonsense usually prevails.
