Pluralsight is not an official partner or accredited training center of EC-Council. The easiest way to get into a system or network is to get someone to let us in. Do you pirate software, movies, music, or heaven forbid - an operating system? I'm about 99.999% sure you've already been pwned. Malware is specifically designed to gain access or damage systems without the knowledge of the victim. Malware is on the rise due to the sheer volume of new types that are easily created daily, and the money that can be made through organized Internet crime. We'll talk about the various malware types, including viruses, Trojans, and worms. Now, we won't leave you in despair, we'll also talk about countermeasures and ways to detect these bad boys. This course is part of the Ethical Hacking Series.
