Widespread, fast internet connectivity has an ugly side: growing opportunity for cybercriminality. You can visualise the scale of the problem by considering that Sophos Labs processes some 20,000 malware sample submissions, and identifies some 30,000 newly infected web pages, *every day*.

These infected pages are rarely on web sites set up specially by the cybercriminals. They are *your* websites, remotely hacked and subverted by criminals who then use your servers to redirect innocent visitors to overtly malicious content.
 
  
Come to this talk and find out, through a live demo (safely done, but using real malware) how a modern cybercriminal attack works. Understand how even a well-informed user can be tricked.
