State of Internet Security 2009 (CA)

The latest Internet Security Report issued by CA, Inc. profiles the top online threats from 2009. The study, based on data compiled by CA's Global Security Advisor researchers, found that rogue security software, search index poisoning, social networks and cybersquatting were among the most notable online threats of 2009.

Web-based attacks as infection vectors are increasing and are effective gateways for distribution of threats.
• Prevalent malware families account for 71% of total infection for January through June 2009.
• Rogue security software is the most prevalent malware infection.
• Attackers take advantage of rich content and media formats such as PDF, SWF, GIF and JPEG for malware infection.
