Malware attacks are becoming more pervasive, sophisticated and dangerous

Hence, defence mechanisms have to pick up speed as well to counter these malware attacks.  The usual traditional ways of preventing these attacks such as installing firewalls, intrusion prevention systems, anti-virus and security gateways are just not enough according to a research study.

Most attacks happen through zip files coming to email in-boxes as attachments. Also malware attackers tend to use .DLL files instead of .EXE files.  These seem to prolong infections. Malwares are able to evade the usual detection systems.

Enterprises need to become more sophisticated in their technologies and methods. The recommendation by experts is to find a way to stop the attack even without knowing about the target that’s being attacked or the malware used for the attack. The insistence is on a multi-layered approach to stop malwares.  Constant updating and patching that Omega recommends on keeping up with is one of the preventive measures against malware.
