I think computer security is ripe for scaremongering. Most people have little understanding of computers and technology so are prone to believe what they're told, especially if it's presented in a believable way by a hip/attractive presenter. It doesn't have to be correct, just believable. This phenomenon isn't restricted to computers and technology unfortunately. A few hours watching American TV will illustrate the point.
