Security Talk: Overview of the Microsoft Security Intelligence Report Volume 8


About This Video

Join us for a conversation with Khalid Kark, Forrester vice president and principal analyst, and Microsoft security experts.

In this Security Talk video we discuss the security threat findings observed in the second half of 2009 from the eighth volume of the Microsoft Security Intelligence Report (SIRv8) – the most globally comprehensive report to date from Microsoft, covering 213 total countries and regions with deep dives into 26 countries and regions.  

The security intelligence contained in SIRv8 is collected through the Malicious Software Removal Tool (MSRT), Forefront Online Protection for Exchange and Forefront Client Security, Microsoft’s newest security offering called Microsoft Security Essentials, Windows Live Hotmail and Bing. This report has the most up-to-date information on the world's most prevalent threats, including rogue security software evolution, exploit trends for browser-based and popular document format attacks, software vulnerability trends (both in Microsoft software and in third-party software), and security and privacy breach analysis.
