8000+ viruses per year.

A typical government project?

If NHS computers can be infected by more than 8000 viruses in a year one has to ask the question, which software/IT Development/IT management company is fleecing tax payers’ money from us?

More to the point, which numpty of a minister approved the spending?

Let me be clear, I have only one PC and it has never had a virus at all in over five years, I use freeware anti virus protection, and freeware open source anti spyware and malware protection, as well as a freeware firewall, it has cost me nothing!

To me this looks like another typical government project involving computers and technology, the politicians haven’t got a clue, so they put it in the hands of NHS managers who similarly haven’t got a clue, they spend millions of pounds on the project (which the minister approves) then come back for more when they find it isn’t working. Those in the business of looking after the software needs are laughing all the way to the bank as they find more and more NHS super bugs to fix!

But it is only your appointments and personal medical records that they are screwing around with.
