While more companies reported malware infections, denial-of-service attacks,
financial fraud and password sniffing in the last year, claimed damages due to
the attacks had shrunk, according to the latest survey of security managers and
corporate executives conducted by the Computer Security Institute.

The report, released on Tuesday and covering from July 2008 to June 2009,
revealed that more than 64 percent of companies reported malware infections, up
from 50 percent during the same period the prior year. Similarly, 29 percent of
companies reported being the target of a denial-of-service attack, up from 21
percent the prior year. Despite the increased incidents, losses fell to less
than $235,000 per company on average, a decrease of 19 percent compared to the
prior year.
