The Importance of Patching Human Vulnerabilities

By David Emm (Securelist)Today’s threat landscape is very complex. Cybercriminals use a wide
range of threats to hijack people’s computers and to make money
illegally. These threats include Trojans of many different kinds,
worms, viruses and exploit code which is designed to enable malware to
make use of vulnerabilities in the operating system or applications.
Cybercriminals also employ a range of sophisticated techniques to hide
malware activity or to make it difficult for anti-virus researchers to
find, analyse and detect malicious code.
