Proactive measures reduce the attack surface and vulnerabilities.
Phase 1 - First Contact:
Malware comes in contact with unsuspecting users, usually through a malicious website. Other access points are removable media, unsolicited messages from social media sites, and misconfigured or unsecured wireless networks.
Phase 2 - Local Execution:
Bad code runs on target machines to exploit vulnerabilities in your applications or your OS. If the malware can subvert protections, it writes its code to disk.
Phase 3 - Establish Presence:
Malicious code hides on your system and is made to persist, so that it survives reboot and stays hidden from security measures and from your users.
Phase 4 - Malicious Activity:
Goal of attack is achieved—from stealing identities and intellectual property theft to bank fraud.
