Such states, in which an object is effectively in two places at once, have until now only been accomplished with single particles, atoms and molecules. In this experiment, published in the journal Nature, scientists produced a quantum state in an object billions of times larger than previous tests.

Its analysis of 240m web pages over 13 months showed that fake anti-virus programs accounted for 15% of all malicious software. Scammers trick people into downloading programs by convincing them that their PC is infected with a virus.

They found antibodies produced in response to the virus do not do a very effective job. Rather than neutralising the virus, they actually help it infect more cells, springing into action when a person is infected a second time by a different strain of the virus. This phenomenon accounts for why a second bout of dengue fever can be more severe and dangerous.

Scientists say they have made a landmark discovery which could pave the way for new drugs to beat illnesses like the common cold. Until now experts had thought that antibodies could only tackle viral infections by blocking or attacking viruses outside cells. But work done by the Medical Research Council shows antibodies can pass into cells and fight viruses from within.
