"The web is the most formidable malware delivery mechanism we’ve seen to date, outpacing even the most prolific worm or virus in its ability to reach — and infect — a mass audience silently and effectively."
That’s from the 2013 Cisco Annual Security Report.
A bit further in the paper there is something that is equally troubling:
"Many security professionals — and certainly a large community of online users — hold preconceived ideas about where people are most likely to stumble across dangerous web malware."
Note: ~By Greg Cox - I’d like to extend my thanks to Cisco for their report

REDMOND, WASHINGTON: Microsoft unwittingly let an online security certificate expire on Friday, triggering a worldwide outage in an online service that stores data for a wide range of business customers.
The sloppy housekeeping represents an embarrassing lapse for Microsoft as the software maker tries to bring in more revenue from the storage service, which is called Azure.

is only as good as the weakest link. And on Wednesday, that weak link appeared to be Adobe Systems.
A hacker who said he was Egyptian posted a message on Pastebin with links to hundreds of records that he said belonged to Adobe employees and users of the company’s software, including employees of Google, NASA and the United States military, as well as academic institutions. The hacker claimed to have pilfered the records from an Adobe server which, he said, had records for some 150,000 Adobe employees and clients.

Malware is downloaded onto users' machines after they click on the message "lol is this your new profile pic?"
A malicious worm spreading through Skype instant messages threatens to take control of a victim's machine and hold its contents for ransom.
The issue, which was first brought to light Friday by GFI, tricks users into downloading a ZIP file by displaying the socially-engineered message, "lol is this your new profile pic?" along with a link that also spreads the message to other Skype users. The ZIP filed contains an executable file that installs a variant of the Dorkbot worm and creating a backdoor via "Blackhole," an exploit kit used by criminals to infect computers through security holes.

Ukrainian operation told computer users their PCs were infected and sold them software to fix the bogus problem
IDG News Service - A U.S. judge has imposed a judgment of $163.2 million against a defendant accused by the U.S. Federal Trade Commission of being part of an operation that sold software to people it tricked into thinking their computers were infected with malicious software.
Judge Richard Bennett of U.S. District Court for the District of Maryland ordered defendant Kristy Ross, vice president of Business Development for Ukraine-based Innovative Marketing, in a Sept. 24 ruling. In late 2008, the FTC filed a complaint
charging Ross, Innovative Marketing and other defendants with distributing scareware.
