Matthew Woolley is set to appear on several radio stations over the next couple of days to highlight the increasing problem of the computer virus, Antivirus 2008 and 2009.

Woolley, who is currently chairman of independent trade association ITACS and owns award winning Forum Computers, told PC Retail: "It's important to bring the problem of this malware to the knowledge of the general public."

Much of the problem has been put down to the relatively professional design of the 'hook'. One indie retailer PC Retail recently spoke to commented: "The design is very professional and some of our customers are saying they had no idea that is was malware."

Woolley will be on Radio 5 Live tomorrow morning at around 7am and Radio 4's consumer programme You and Your's from midday Monday.
