Virus in da hood?

Mirapoint's new Secure Messaging Centre has some useful information, although the blinking red targets on the world map make it look rather alarmist (you're going to sign up for the RSS feed if you need this kind of information). The fact that you can't scroll through the list of current attacks by hand or click to get any more details underlines that this is actually an infomercial. But what does amuse me is that along with the location, spam subject, referenced URL and estimated number of attackers is a little gauge showing the "massiveness" of each. Because 'severity' is just too severe?
