The monthly intelligence report, provides the latest analysis of cyber security threats, trends, and insights from the Symantec intelligence team concerning malware, spam, and other potentially harmful business risks.
ē The .doc file type was the most common attachment type used in spear-phishing attacks, making up more than 52.9 percent of all attachments in September.
ē The largest data breach reported in September actually took place in April, and resulted in the exposure of 56 million identities.
ē There were 600 vulnerabilities disclosed in the month of September, the highest number so far in 2014 and second-highest in the last 12 months.
Spammers have now fired a new barrage of image spam using randomized images that appear identical to the human eye, yet appear to be entirely unique to most anti-spam software. Many of the changes to the images contained within spam messages are so subtle that they require a pixel-by-pixel examination of the image in order to detect the differences. Read how Secure Computing effectively addresses this problem.

At the Mail Gateway, MailScan for SMTP Servers scans and cleans mails that flow between all local users and mails between the Internet and Mail Server. It protects organizations against Viruses, Worms, Trojans, Backdoors and many other malware, blocks Spam and Phishing mails, while providing total Content Security for email traffic.
Malware has changed considerably since the early PC viruses appeared more than 25 years ago. Today, it evolves so quickly that many customers find staying ahead of the latest threat nearly impossible. If the explosion in malware variants werenít enough, sophisticated client-side attacks and advanced persistent threats (APTs) target victims in ways that evade traditional security measures. The question isnít whether your network will be attacked with advanced malware. The question is when it will happen and how you will respond. Advanced malware is changing the way security is managed.
Phishing is defined by the Financial Services Technology Consortium (FSTC) as a broadly launched social engineering attack in which an electronic identity is misrepresented in an attempt to trick individuals into revealing personal credentials that can be used fraudulently against them. In short, itís online fraud to the highest degree.
Although itís been around for years, phishing is still one of the most common and effective online scams. The schemes are varied, typically involving some combination of spoofed email (spam), malicious software (malware), and fake websites to harvest personal information from unwitting consumers. The explosive rise of mobile devices, mobile applications, and social media networks has given phishers new vectors to exploit, along with access to volumes of personal data that can be used in more targeted attacks or spear phishing. The fact that phishing attacks are still so common highlights their efficacy and reinforces the need to implement comprehensive phishing and response plans to protect organizations.
An effective phishing protection plan should focus on four primary areas: Prevention, Detection, Response, and Recovery. High-level recommendations for each of the four areas are outlined in this whitepaper.

Every year, organizations spend millions of frustrating hours and countless sums of money trying to reverse the
damage done by malware attacks. The harm caused by malware can be astronomical, going well beyond
intellectual property loss and huge fines levied for non-compliance. In 2014, the cost of malware attacks and
resulting breaches was estimated at $491 billion.
i And these costs include more than just the money spent trying
to directly respond to security breaches. Productivity, long-term profitability, and brand reputation are often
severely impacted as well.
The malware threat is growing larger and becoming more challenging to respond to every year. It seems like every
month there are more major breaches. Target, Neiman Marcus, and UPS have all been victims of costly breaches in
the past couple years, with each event showing signs that the breaches could have
been prevented. Phishing-based malware was the starting point 95 percent of the time
in state-sponsored attacks, and 67
