Even though malware infections spiked after the first weekend of online holiday shopping, the biggest spike may be yet to come. Last year the biggest day for malware infections during the holiday shopping season didn’t come until the middle of December.

Computer malware infections jumped from Black Friday through Cyber Monday, according to data released by Enigma Software Group, makers of the SpyHunter anti-malware software. In fact, the research so far nationally has revealed a 123.65 percent spike; last year infections over the holiday shopping weekend jumped 106 percent; and North Carolina had the largest spike in infections with a whopping 316 percent increase.
