Any threat that comes from the World Wide Web and endangers the system is known as Web Threat. All web threats use HTTP or HTTPS protocols and are linked to various types of malware and fraud actions. They can also utilize other protocols and components, such as links in e-mail or IM, malware attachments or on servers that access the Web.
Nowadays most activities are automated and a large number of them is available on the internet. This puts companies at risk of getting infected with different kinds of malware, viruses, ransomware and other kinds of suspicious software. This leads to the theft of information, destruction of information assets, encryption of data, which then causes a fall in credibility, reputation damage and even bankruptcy.
The most common web security threats are:*
- Rogue security software
- Trojan horses
- Adware and spyware
- Computer worms
- DOS and DDOS attacks
- Phishing and others
