Modern web attacks
Sophos has a number of papers interesting to the IS professional and researcher. "This paper provides an overview of modern malware that uses the web to attack victims. Example attacks are used to illustrate some of the tricks and techniques used by hackers. The roles of "attack sites" and compromised sites are discussed together with some of the technologies that can be used to provide protection."
This paper is very relevant to any IS professional who needs to help launch safeguards against malicious attacks. Such attacks are becoming increasingly frequent and serious. To download this paper, go to the Sophos Website.
