Converged Threats on the Security Landscape

Free registration required

Executive Summary

The pervasive presence of malware on the Internet today creates more opportunities for mixing and matching dangerous content than has ever been possible. The essence of a converged threat is the combination of viruses, spyware, phishing, spam and other attempts at attack or exploitation of vulnerabilities that can disrupt networks and/or lead to theft or unwanted disclosure of sensitive information. These threats are no longer specific to particular channels for information delivery: They can come from e-mail, Web, and Instant Messaging (IM), and even Voice over IP (VoIP) applications and environments.
