As virus threats have evolved into more sophisticated and malicious forms, the problem of re-infection and viruses exploiting network security holes has increased. Re-infection and new infections occur when vulnerabilities have been either left by a previous virus infection or have been opened within your network. For instance, thousands of companies experienced recurring Code Red virus outbreaks because unauthorized and un-patched IIS servers were connected to their networks. In addition, open shares created by viruses like Funlove and Nimda invite re-infection of viruses and can cause significant damage in productivity and economic losses. It is often a manual or time-consuming process to find out where your network is vulnerable to virus infections. Some methods or tools require extensive security expertise or definitions just to find the trouble spots in the network. Administrators who want to quickly and easily find their viral vulnerabilities now have a new tool: McAfee ThreatScan.
