Malware attacks are a common way of injecting computers, servers and files to steal data without the knowledge of the host machine. There are different types of malwares that are designed to perform various nefarious activities and this can be decided by the malware creator.
Malware attacks on websites are a very common and easy way to infect servers and steal data from the website and any other sites that are on the server. It can be done by injecting malicious codes through submission forms or fields where data can be entered.
There are a lot of methods through which malicious code injections can be contained viz., form validations, re-captcha integration etc. However, a few codes can overcome the standard malware defiance protocols which is why we recommend having a website security service.
