ABSTRACT:

Forget about email, mobile devices and network attacks. A staggering 85% of today’s malware comes from the Web, and as many as 30,000 websites become infected with malware each day. Enterprises that fail to shift more resources toward Web-based malware defense are not adequately reducing their risk. This Security School lesson will examine trends in Web-borne malware, including contemporary attacker and malware trends, and recent cutting-edge attack methods, and details the technologies and tactics enterprises can put in place to achieve “quick wins” to reduce malware risk and long-term strategies to harden browsers, enhance detection and educate users.
