Quotes

Parvinder Walia, Sales Director for APAC at ESET , added, "The threat landscape in APAC continues to evolve, as cybercriminals become more advanced in their methods of attack. The 2015 edition is designed with new add-ons as well as proven features such as Anti-Theft and Personal Firewall, to ensure our customers can benefit from the advantages of being in a highly digital society but with highly secured data privacy. Existing users of these products can also enjoy a free upgrade to Version 8 ."
"2013 saw a number of high-profile botnet attacks. The technology inside ESET Smart Security 8 uncovers unusual network communication patterns characteristic of botnets. An example was Operation Windigo, carried out by ESET Research Labs. It uncovered over 25 000 infected servers, used for over two years to redirect half a million Web visitors to malicious content on a daily basis. In all, the botnet allowed the attackers to send more than 35 million spam messages per day."
"The prices range from US$5 to over $1,000, depending on the attack’s duration and size," the report states. "While the sellers offer amplification attacks that could generate more than 100 Gbps of attack traffic, in reality the generated traffic seen is usually around 20-40 Gbps."
Goh said SMEs needed to take better steps to secure their customers information. "Keeping patches up toto date is important - as many as 60 percent of attacks in Malaysia could be avoided with properly patched operating systems, browsers and plug-ins. Also, as mobile malware are on the rise in mobile devices, ensure these mobile devices are managed properly in the corporate environment where employees are free to bring in their own choice of mobile devices (BYOD)."
