Trusteer says it has spotted the Trojan virus in one of every 3,000 of the 5.5m computers it monitors in the US and UK.
Or to put it another way, 99.967% were not infected with zeus.

What I'm left wondering then is, out of 5.5 million PC users, how many would be dumb enough to download and install iWantzUrMonE.exe from an untrusted source. Does ~1833 sound about right to you?
