Webroot’s machine learning and cloud mix evolves threat intelligence

HUNTING MALWARE in the vast virtual planes of the internet and amid the thousands of files on even the most basic PC is a challenge for the best cyber security boffins. Threat researchers can usually be found at cyber security companies sifting through data, analysing files and tracing the origins of malware down rabbit warrens of scripts, file paths and rogue code hiding behind seemingly harmless executable files. Once malware is found it can be squashed and measures can be put into place to protect other systems from similar attacks.

More advanced services also integrate vulnerability alerting with real-world…
