Today, the benefits of malware seem to be greater for attackers than the risks of undertaking the criminal activity. Cyberspace offers criminals a large number of potential targets and ways to derive income from online victims. It also provides an abundant supply of computing resources that can be harnessed to facilitate this criminal activity. Both the malware and compromised information systems being used to launch the attacks have a low cost, are readily available and frequently updated. High speed Internet connections and increased bandwidth allow for the mass compromise of information systems that renew and expand the self-sustaining attack system. By contrast, communities engaged in fighting malware face numerous challenges that they cannot always address effectively.
