Malware's Origins, Motivations.
Nearly every day, industry analysts and security researchers warn IT professionals about the skyrocketing proliferation of malware. A simple Web search turns up many reports that dissect the technical nature of malicious software, how it works, and how it affects its victims.
But who develops malware, and who distributes it? Who buys it, and what do they hope to achieve? Ask these questions in a Web search, and you'll find a lot fewer results.
In a report issued last week, ScanSafe security researcher Mary Landesman offers some thoughts on the genesis and spread of malware " this time from a business perspective, rather than a technical point of view. While Landesman's report -- part of ScanSafe's Annual Global Threat Report -- is far from the first to offer insight on the business of malware, it does offer a snapshot of the current state of the malware business, and a clear categorization of the players.
