Exelos partner TrendMicro recently published a good article explaining several common backdoor techniques and the role of backdoors in targeted attacks. Backdoors are applications that open up computers to remote access. Unprotected networked computers can give attackers opportunities to issue silent commands to infected computers, allowing them to spy on online conversations, access infected sites, and steal passwords.
You can read the entire article here. If you do, you may come away scratching your head and a little nervous asking, “Are we secure?” Don’t wonder! Give Exelos a call and we’ll help you assess your exposure and implement protection that fits your needs.
