A Tale of Two Malware Attacks: One Blocked and One Brutal

CBS Interactive and Symantec are proud to present “A tale of two malware attacks: one blocked and one brutal,” a cautionary tale that explores what goes wrong when users in small and medium-sized business aren’t properly protected.

Join us as we meet Daniel Carter, VP of Finance at Lunagate Industries, a 38-person, up-and-coming contract design firm. Daniel was doing something many small business owners and managers have to do regularly: visiting his bank’s Web site. Unfortunately, Daniel’s computer was not sufficiently protected; malware made its way through Daniel’s browser and onto his computer. The net result: Daniel’s company lost more than half a million dollars and Daniel lost his job.
