There seems to be no end to evolving security attacks aimed at computers and servers in these times. Every system is at risk of malicious attacks via a growing landscape of viruses and malwares created with different intentions however most recently the focus has strongly shifted to those of financial gains.
The increase in the problem can be partly contributed to the significant growth in the use of mobile devices and cloud based applications across the internet, increasing the number of targets and subsequently the profitability of creating and distributing malware. This makes securing your business’ vital resources more important than ever whilst still trying to keep the flexibility of mobile devices that we desire in the modern world. In my last post on the IPv4 to IPv6 Protocol Upgrade I touched on the growing digital threats that have taken off as a result to the lack of security built into IPv4. And today I am going to expand on some specific threats.
