Are Viruses, Malware Winning The Security Battle?

Virus programmers seem to know no limits when it comes to creative ways of make the internet unsafe. Rootkits, originally programs designed to help computer administrators, are the [more] current bugbear for security firms trying to prevent them from sneaking worms, trojans, and viruses past anti-virus programs. There is no stock recipe for detecting malware. Virus authors work hard to stay ahead ahead of their pursuers. To close that gap, most anti-virus programs perform what are known as heuristic scans to look for general virus behaviour patterns. Firewall software is recommended as an additional security measure. This allows the computer user to at least partially control what is being sent and received by his computer. At minimum, the Windows firewall function should be activated. “One in three computers is insufficiently protected,” says Christoph Fischer, general manager at VFK EDV-Consulting, a Karlsruhe-based IT security firm.

DDoS: the rise from obscurity

Six years ago, a flurry of high-profile news articles and research papers reported on the emergence of DDoS attacks. Research released by Arbor Networks at the end of September revealed that DDoS attacks are the most significant security threat facing ISPs today. Arbor’s Worldwide Infrastructure Security Report, a survey conducted in cooperation with the security operations community of the major ISPs, revealed that 46% of surveyed operators now dedicate more resources to addressing DDoS issues than any other security threat. Respondents also reported a continued growth in the frequency and magnitude of DDoS attacks. ISPs now regularly experience attacks beyond the capacity of core backbone circuits in the 10–20Gbps range. This trend has been driven globally by a proliferation of broadband Internet connectivity and network convergence. The rise in DDoS attacks reflects a change in the motivation of cyber criminals – Internet-based threats have taken on a more malevolent and …

According to a press statement posted on its website, Kaspersky Lab has discovered the first virus designed to infect iPod portable media players.
