In this course, you'll learn about the potential effects that malware can have on a system, as well as common malware types including cavity, stealth, polymorphic, metamorphic, and memory-resident viruses. You'll learn about backdoor exploits, and discover how they can be executed using FTP, HTTP, and password stealing. You'll then learn about the characteristics of worms, spyware, and adware, as well as common techniques and infection methods used by malware to exploit a system. Explore countermeasures used to prevent being infected by malware, and learn how to use security tools and solutions to prevent systems from being compromised. This course was originally created by Global Knowledge (GK).
