    "Our new 1H 2011 Advanced Threat Report is out! It is our inaugural report and I think you will find it interesting because it is uniquely focused on the new and dynamic threats. We have thousands of appliances protecting organizations around the world, and they are deployed _behind_ firewalls, intrusion prevention systems, antivirus and Web gateways. So, the threat data we reviewed in this report are the _successful_ malware attacks breaking through traditional defenses." :

    @ Dermot7

    Thanks for posting :thumb:

    *

    Bearing in mind the client list for their Apps, i'm Amazed at the lack of user "taught" awareness, & also "seemingly" Really crappy IT depts !

    Why/how would corporate etc users be DL'ing & installing those ?

    *

    What !

    *

    Makes me wonder what these "traditional security defenses" are ?

    Another thing, if FireEye are taking this data from their installed appliances ? What does that say about them :D If not how did they arrive at those conclusions ?
