4 Stages of an Attack and How McAfee Complete Endpoint Protection Business Suite Defends You

Pre-Attack Phase

Proactive measures reduce the attack surface and vulnerabilities.


Stage 1: First Contact

Malware comes in contact with unsuspecting users, usually through a malicious website. Other access points are removable media, unsolicited messages from social media sites, and misconfigured or unsecured wireless networks.


Stage 2: Local Execution

Bad code runs on target machines to exploit vulnerabilities in applications or the OS. If the malware can subvert protections, it writes its code to disk.


Stage 3: Establish Presence

Malicious code hides on the system and is made to persist, so that it survives reboot and stays hidden from security measures and from the user.


Stage 4: Malicious Activity

Goal of attack is achieved - from stealing identities and intellectual property theft to bank fraud.
