Viral Threats – An Examination of Current and Evolving Technologies
by Antonio Martin
This paper will attempt to consider the current, near term and future evolution of computational attacks and map these to possible deployment timeframes and developmental complexity and examine possible technologies needed to help combat pending threats. Furthermore, several scenarios will be illustrated, outlining how some of these current and future viral technologies can be leveraged into wide scale attacks. The paper's purpose is to facilitate discussions about future computational infections, the technology they will employ and new ideas for future development.
