Any computer or endpoint touching the network is considered a TARGET.
If the network is compromised the costs could be catastrophic for an organization.
How a virus affects you and what can you do to get protected:
- Viruses such as MyDoom are extremely dangerous, because if a cyber criminal gains control over your computer you may never see your data again.
- Severe malware usually morphs and has a very low detection score, so antivirus solutions can’t detect it.
- You need a proactive solution that can work as a supplement for your AV, scanning your Internet traffic and warning you when potential threats appear, while also blocking access to hacker controlled servers and keeping your data from leaking.
Not so FUN FACT: The fastest spreading email worm was MyDoom, causing a record $38.5 BILLION worth of damage.
