Faster and More Complex Viruses

There is a villain in the computer industry that can strike fear into any company or individual that encounters it. It has been wreaking havoc in both the business and personal computer world for many years. Its frequency and intensity of attack is on the rise. It’s the computer virus.

Viruses are programs designed to interfere with the proper functioning of a computer. They are quickly infecting every segment of the computer industry, attacking with greater frequency and efficiency due to their increased complexity.

Years ago, viruses had the ability to attack vulnerabilities in computer programs that were two years old or more. This allowed businesses ample time to patch and update security systems before the computer was confronted with an attack by the virus.

But more recent viruses, known as worms, are designed to exploit weaknesses in computer programs that are less than a year old. The increased propagation speed tends to decrease the ability of companies to install patches and updates before they are infected with the worm.

One specific worm—the Blaster worm—has managed to travel through network connections to transport itself throughout the world in six minutes. Experts predict that this increased sophistication is only the beginning of faster, more efficient viruses.
