Financially Driven Network Attacks

Network Attacks – Past and Present

In the past, network attacks were motivated by fame and recognition. Today’s threats have become far more complex. Malware, and targeted attacks are almost always economically motivated. The goal of today’s threats is to stay silent and hidden for as long as possible while stealing confidential and financial data off of infected networks throughout the world.

New Discoveries

• Malware is now economically motivated and backed by organized crime and foreign interests.
• The development of highly critical malware, such as targeted attacks, is also on the rise.
• The level of sophistication behind malware makes it extremely difficult for traditional solutions to detect and remove.
• Creation of Bot-Networks to defraud business models and consumers through sophisticated social engineering.
