Website Security in Corporate America
White paper by Symantec Corporation, published on 10/3/2013
We often think of malware as being designed to sit beneath the radar, collecting data in stealth mode, for the purposes of fraud or corporate espionage. Increasingly however, we?re witnessing attacks on corporations designed to cause substantial economic losses via wholesale destruction. For example, the Shamoon malware that recently hit Saudi Arabia-based Aramco (the world?s largest oil company) and RasGas (a Qatar-based gas company) corrupted files on tens of thousands of workstations, overwriting the Master Boot Records.
These malware attacks, which may well have targeted website vulnerabilities, resulted in destruction on an industrial scale. At Aramco, IT professionals were forced to replace 30,000 PCs and laptops. RasGas meanwhile, had to shut down all email communications, and the company?s website was forced offline.
