The latest threat to intellectual property comes in the shape of malicious software (malware) that is capable of infecting a computer, hiding itself until the user accesses specific files or Web sites...and then deleting any trace of itself...the vast majority of new malware uses "some type of stealth" or anti-forensic technology in an attempt to remain undetected before, during and after an attack...techniques used not only include 'the obvious ones' such as encryption and rootkits but also "compression bombs"...
