I’m trying to study for my Computer Science course and I need some help to understand this question.
Malicious software (malware) attacks continue to be a major threat to systems and networks. Conduct research on an attack that has occurred within the past 24 months. If possible, this should be an attack that had an impact in Saudi Arabia or the Middle East. Describe the following:
- The type of malware, method of attack, and system vulnerability exploited.
- How would a successful attack like this impact you or your organization?
- What steps could have been taken to prevent this exploitation?
