The problem of malware is neither a new one, nor is it one that is going to go away any time soon. There is far, far too much money involved for the criminals who use Trojans, viruses, and bot armies to simply give up using them. It is not only home users who are targeted with these malware attacks, but it is also the corporate end-user. That brings us to the point of this article series. It is only through education that this problem can be eradicated. Having an anti-virus program running on a user’s computer is great, just as it is to have a content checking program run on your Exchange server. Your best line of defense is an educated user. There will always be a new breed of malware that is able to slip past your defenses, be it a new trojan, or a new client side exploit in a web browser. By virtue of making your users aware of the problem you will have gone a long way towards mitigating the threat of malware in your corporate network environment.
