iv news: infectionvectors.com notes and news
infectionvectors.com is dedicated to providing information that will help anyone protect their networks from malicious software. An infection vector generically refers to the mechanism a virus employs to attach itself to a host, with respect to a computer virus, how it invades a machine.
In the world of physics, vectors require direction and magnitude. This site evaluates Internet attacks with a similar standard: to be important to a any organization, malware must have a significant direction (a means of targeting and penetrating the network) and magnitude (an impact worthy of the resources expended in mitigation efforts).
