Huge Malvertising Campaign Uncovered

In response to the news that Proofpoint has discovered a huge malvertising campaign which pulled in as many as 1 million client machines per day, Mark James, security specialist at ESET commented below.

Mark James, Security Specialist at ESET:

Making sure your operating systems and applications are all up-to-date, and that you have a good regular updating internet security product will help you stay safer. Good multilayer protection is the only way you will stay safe these days, relying on single measures is just not good enough anymore.”
