"The motive and intention of virus writers have changed," said Brian Burke, research manager, Security Products. "In the past, worms and viruses were typically created to destroy data by amateurs seeking notoriety. Today, more sophisticated attackers, often organized crime, are increasingly using worms and viruses to obtain credit card numbers, bank account information, and other personal information to perpetrate identity theft. IDC believes this profit-driven motivation will cause the number of attacks to increase in sophistication, frequency, and severity."
