Re: Think layers of security is all that? Think again

I think many, even those in security fields, simply fail to ask simple questions.

The purpose of malware, any malware, is for one human (or group) to gain what another has be that data, money, access etc.

Thus the two first questions should be: What? and Why? Once those have been identified you then ask "How?.

The answers to those question are often different for different individuals and organizations.

PS: Imagine I set up up some network with PC's, firewalls, A/V and so on but no-one (i.e. no people) uses it. Who would bother to hack into that system? What purpose would it serve to do so?
