What is malware?

Malware is a general term for malicious software and is a growing problem on the Internet. Hackers install malware by
exploiting security weaknesses on servers and gaining access to websites. The malware code is not visible or easily detected,
and may infect customers' computers when they simply browse a compromised website. Hackers use it to spread viruses,
hijack computers, or steal sensitive data such as credit card numbers or other personal information.

Why does a website need a malware scan?

Every website needs to be trusted to be successful. Growing concerns about fake sites, viruses, and identity theft have made
consumers reluctant to do business with websites that are not taking steps to protect against them. Over 286 million unique
variants of malware were identified last year alone, and the total malware traversing the Internet continues to grow at an
alarming pace.5
