Hey folks--

Webster's dictionary added a bunch of new words to their latest edition. Interestingly, one of the the new words is 'malware', which they define like so:

malware (1990): software designed to interfere with a computer's normal functioning.

I think that every little bit of extra exposure to help educate users out there is a step in the right direction.
