Blaming the Victim


When it comes to malware, there's plenty of blame to go around, including the criminals who write it and the vendors who release buggy applications. According to a recent survey, there's also a third culprit: the end users themselves. 67 percent of respondents cite user behavior as the leading source of malicious code on enterprise PCs. Employees clicking on attachments or downloading software is seen as more of a problem than mobile users or zero-day attacks. The survey, conducted by security vendor GreenBorder, solicited the opinions of 70 IT managers. Blaming the Victim - Yahoo! News
