The DNS attacks are a major threat to business.Unlike traditional viruses that target the end user, DNS attacks targeting Web servers. They contaminate the gateways to redirect Internet addresses typed by the user to a third party site relaying viruses or online scam ( cheat,tricks etc).

Phishing relies on fake bank sites, insurance and e-commerce, which calls the user to enter their certification of settings. Rootkits - kits or system administration - provide for their attackers to access critical functions of the operating system after installation.

Last threat in vogue on the Internet,spyware. These programs are installed or through other software (Kazaa. ..), is unknown to the user through an automatic process. Once present on the job, they collect data as the last accessed files, favorite sites, software and sometimes more confidential information like passwords.
