A report by Microsoft’s security research team revealed that the complicated Danish language acts as a shield against virus attacks and makes it difficult for cyber criminals to penetrate the computer system. The data indicated that historically Nordic countries such as Denmark, Norway and Finland have typically some of the lowest computer virus infection rates in the world.
The research consisted of data from 600 million computer systems over six months. The data showed that four of the five locations in the Nordic region had the lowest infection rates with Denmark taking over Sweden’s place. All five locations had infection rates between 1.3 and 2.3 per 1000 scans compared to the worldwide average of 7.1.
