Excellent post thanks.

 

Doesn't the common architecture/codebase also allow security vendors to deploy protections for Regin based malware?

I know I'm missing something, seems far too simple.

A whitelisting policy in your future
It is new threats like this that give me more ammunition to fight for comprehensive application whitelisting policies and procedures for our enterprise.

Great article - including the reference article by Kelly Jackson Higgins.
