Executive Summary

The type and frequency of Web-delivered malware changed dramatically in 2008. Chief among the causative factors was the marriage of profit-motivated attackers to automated tools that streamline both the discovery and the compromise of vulnerable websites. While SQL injection attacks have by far been the most prevalent attacks on websites throughout 2008, all forms of website compromise have been on the increase. These compromises are not occurring by the hundreds or even the thousands, but rather can be counted in the millions. This ScanSafe STAT Vertical Risk Assessment presents the results of that analysis, detailing the vertical rates of exposure to Web-delivered malware as well as providing an analysis of the types and severity of the malware encountered.
