Today the Internet is a valuable source of information as well as a powerful communication medium, with undoubted social and economic benefits, however it also poses some security risks. Virsuses may hide in email attachments or in appartently innocent applications directly downloadable from the Internet. In this work we give a brief overview of virus types and main defense techniques. Then we present statistical data of virus attacks revealed by an anti-virus SW activated on our e-mail server, and discuss results in terms of virus types and temporal distribution.
