QOTD on Malware

Modern malware is merely a tool – and only one of many – used by cybercriminals to carry out their attacks. To approach today’s security challenges as a malware problem is to completely miss the bigger picture – it is a criminally run sophisticated e-business network intent on gathering intellectual and corporate assets. It is not simply a malware problem per se; it is a large scale cyber-espionage assault and all countries are being adversely impacted.
