A website exclusively dedicated to share information on vulnerabilities existing in malware has been created by a researcher.
Traditionally, malware infects and spreads through the file system. Fileless malware instead uses existing software, allowed applications and authorized protocols for the exploitation and conducts the malicious activity in the system memory, avoiding the file system, to prevent detection by anti-malware or other classical security mechanisms.
Malware is a broad term that refers to a variety of malicious software designed to harm or exploit any programmable device or network. Types of malware can include viruses, worms, Trojan horses, root kits, ransomware, bots, adwares, spywares etc.
