...the result of criminal activity -- they result in loss of data, intellectual property or far worse, control of critical infrastructure," he said. "Advanced or targeted threats change elements of their life cycle to avoid detection – these threats can only be stopped by threat intelligence that has been gathered across a wide cross-section of the industry."
"Every customer environment we work with we find variants of either Zeus or Citadel or SpyEye or some other financial malware" Tamir said
"The use of massively distributed malware means that attackers don’t need to spear-phish targets or design custom malware.

"The rapid building up and tearing down of new and unknown sites destabilizes many existing security controls. Understanding what these sites are and how they are used is a key to building a better security posture."
