This afternoon a local TV newscaster (Atlanta) pronounced "malware" with the first syllable like "mall."  I would pronounce the first syllable to rhyme with "pal"--though I don't believe I have ever actually spoken the word; perhaps I hadn't even heard it spoken.  I there a "standard" pronunciation?
