Malware uses your website to spread viruses, hijack computers, and steal sensitive data such as credit card numbers or other personal information. Malware code is not easily detected and may infect your customers’ computers when they visit your website.
A typical website (even the simplest blog) may have thousands of potential vulnerabilities. By using vulnerability assessment to identify the most critical vulnerabilities for correction, you may reduce the risk of hackers finding your site and attacking it. Symantec SSL Certificates include daily scans for website malware and automatic weekly scans that look for vulnerabilities that hackers most commonly exploit. (Compare SSL Certificates for details).
