Let’s break down advanced malware and its sneaky sidekick, dormant code, in a way that’s easy for all of us to understand. Advanced malware is a high-tech robot with multiple parts waiting to cause trouble.
Now, let’s talk about dormant code. This is like the robot’s secret weapon, hidden away until it gets the right signal to spring into action. By staying undercover, it can slip past security systems like antivirus and anti-malware software without being noticed.
Why does this matter? Advanced baddies like ransomware or financial malware rely on outside help to download their nasty bits. If they can’t connect to their control center, the dormant code stays hidden and undetected.
