Dasient: Web Page Malware Infections Double

Kara Reeder

Security startup Dasient has issued a report that shows the number of Web pages infected with malware has nearly doubled in the last quarter compared to a year ago.


According to SFGate, there were approximately 5.5 million pages infected with malware in the fourth quarter of 2009, compared to about 3 million infected pages during the last quarter of 2008. The report also shows that four out of every 10 Web sites were re-infected in the fourth quarter, even after the malware was removed.


Web-based infections have proven an effective form of malware distribution, says Dasient co-founder Neil Daswani:

Web-based malware is working for attackers and (they) have doubled their investment in these infection techniques.
