The Power to Destroy: How Malware Works
Nearly a quarter of IT managers simply don’t know how secure their website is.1 However, with the number of web-attacks blocked per day rising from 190,370 to 247,350 between 2011 and 2012, it’s vital for businesses to understand the part their website plays in the distribution of malware to clients, customers and the wider online community.
Malware takes many different forms. It can log keystrokes, lead to data breaches, lock down hardware and use infected systems to spread malware to other victims. As a website owner it’s your responsibility to not only protect your business and customers, but the safety of the Internet too. Consider the impact to your business and brand if you were the source of infection.
