All of us worry about the security of our digital systems through malware attacks by cybercriminals. According to M86 Security, our use of Web 2.0 technology in schools means that we need “multilayered protection” for our networks and students. M86 says that “84% of malware attacks are from legitimate Web 2.0 sites”, sites that educators consider safe. With the number of malware attacks on the rise, school districts have experienced significant problems with suspected viruses that allow criminals to access bank account information and to instigate network disabling cyber attacks on school systems. M86, along with Sophos, the Google Security Team, Kaspersky Bulletin, and Websense Security Labs all show huge growth in malware. Details are available on the M86 site about the problems schools and districts are encountering. To learn about the dangers of malware and how to avoid these attacks in your school system, go to the M86 site, where you can find information on threats such as Trojans, spyware, scareware, botnets, blended threats, and others.
