Malware from the Cloud – A Growing Trend
Research is showing that two thirds of Malware downloads are being delivered by Cloud Services
The key attack vector at the moment is Google Drive but pretty much all online systems are being used to deliver the malicious downloads.
There is a huge rise in malicious Office documents being sent and downloaded.- we have seen this time and time again with our clients. This highlights the need for not just having Antivirus and Firewall programs but a growing awareness of best security practices in how your employees work.
We have recently seen a new email attack where the links are disguised as PDF’s when in reality they are only images of PDF’s which link you to malicious websites.
How to protect yourself:
1. Install a good AntiVirus and Firewall
2. Design your security and best practices policy to cover these issues
3. Warn your staff when an attack is underway
4. Audit your IT infrastructure to ensure they remain patched and undated.
