You might think that Fortune 500 companies and government agencies are bulletproof when it comes to protecting their information. But the recent revelation that at least 250 Fortune 500 companies and 27 of 55 government agencies had at least one computer infected with DNS Changer shows that even the biggest organizations are vulnerable to information theft.

 DNS Changer is a type of malware that widely affected computers in the U.S. and around the world. It allows criminals to redirect users from a safe website to an insecure webpage, leaving the user’s information exposed. As you can imagine, stories like this become even more troubling for business owners, who are also charged with protecting clients’ information, as well as their own.

The lesson here is that if the world’s largest organizations can be attacked by these types of malware, so can yours. It’s just another reminder that regularly running security updates to make sure all of your organization’s computers are protected is essential.
