Computer Viruses and Other Malicious Software

A Threat to the Internet Economy

Malware attacks are increasing both in frequency and sophistication, thus posing a serious threat to the Internet economy and to national security. This book is a first step toward addressing the threat of malware in a comprehensive, global manner. It informs readers about malware -- its growth, evolution and countermeasures to combat it;  presents new research into the economic incentives driving cyber-security decisions; and  makes specific suggestions on how the international community can better work together to address the problem.

Hide / Show Abstract

This book has only begun to lay the foundation for understanding the malware phenomenon and how it is evolving. Further work in many areas could and should be done to reach a better understanding. Fighting malware is complex and would benefit from more comprehensive measurement, coordination and policy solutions. While many ongoing initiatives are contributing important resources to combating malware, there remain a number of areas for improvement.
