It doesn´t pay to underestimate Malware

Attackers often place malware on weakly secured websites. The malware then attacks the computers of visitors and its aim is mainly to access confidential data such as log in details or credit card numbers. The webmaster usually finds out too late, often when his websites get blocked by search engines and modern browsers. Malware attack can have fatal consequences for business and the credibility of the website.

What is Malware?

Malware is a computer program designed to enter or damage a computer system.
The word malware is made up of the words malicious and software and describes the author`s intention rather than its specific features. Malware can be computer viruses, trojan horses, spyware or adware..
Since the rise of widespread broadband Internet access, malicious software has more frequently been designed for profit. Since 2003, the majority of widespread viruses and worms have been designed to take control of users' computers for illicit purposes. Infected "zombie computers" are used to send email spam, to host contraband data such as child pornography, or to engage in distributed denial-of-service attacks.

One way to attack a computer is by placing malware on common websites. The attackers abuse the mistakes in computer programmes and get FTP passwords, try to find out access passwords through “brutal” dictionary attack or they abuse “holes” in web editorial systems and after a successful attack they upload a dangerous code to the website, which can then cause abuse of the users’ computer.
