Malware is a dangerous weapon cybercriminals continue to use against businesses. Malware, short for malicious software, is created with the intent of causing harm to a website or computer. Website malware can be used to steal vulnerable customer information, hold websites for ransom, or even take control of the website itself. Every minute, four companies fall victim to ransomware attacks. Don’t be one of the websites that fall prey to strikes.
