SANS Reading Room GIAC GREM Gold Paper - MalwareD

Computers pose a risk to companies due to the nature of the information they store. Most organizations battle computer based threats on a daily basis. Malware is the attacker's vehicle. It is diverse, evolving, and capable of any attack a programmer can dream up. Routing, DNS and the principle of least privilege are three critical defenses to combat malicious software. Enterprises who tune these technologies to a more protective stance have a greater chance at successful defense. A test of a few thousand malware samples has demonstrated that these critical defenses work. As a result, a security analyst can better focus their investigations on events that they know have success in their environment.
