The military strategist Carl von Clausewitz stated:
“All war presupposes human weakness and seeks to exploit it.”
Malicious software (malware) is software that is explicitly designed to exploit vulnerabilities in computing devices and human users to the malicious advantage of the malware author or malware user.
