Following the news that Toyota Australia confirmed a cyber-attack which took down its email system, Jake Moore, cyber security expert at ESET UK commented below.
Jake Moore, Cyber Security Expert at ESET UK:
“Cybercrime constantly evolves and the usual vectors used by malware creators to spread infections are difficult to detect by antivirus products alone these days. Moreover, second generation malware can go undetected for months; malicious actors evolve and improve their tactics to avoid detection as much as possible, as we have seen with large scale attacks such as BA.com. To enhance security, businesses should be using modern anti-malware solutions focused predominantly on detecting new evolving malware. Threat intelligence software programs will identify threats and add value to cyber threat information by evaluating the context of its source and reliability.”
