Malware's Impact on e-Business & m-Commerce: they mean business!

Pan, J.Y. and Fung, C.C.ORCID: 0000-0001-5182-3558 (2009) Malware's Impact on e-Business & m-Commerce: they mean business! In: 8th International Conference on e-Business (iNCEB2009), 28 - 30 October, Bangkok, Thailand



Malware is a dominant issue in the e-Business arena. It is affecting many of the key e-Business actors from the end users, to businesses offering online services to intermediaries and critical essential infrastructure needed to ensure continued e-Business activities. It has affected the mobility computing platform and m-Commerce too. The impact of Malware is significant and wide ranging. The risk posed by Malware to e-Business actors has prompted variety of responses from the latter. However, the responses have mainly been a catch-up game by the targeted actors (or victims). Beyond the direct impact that Malware has on its targets, there are other forms of reactions that has been induced. Many of which has not been constructive or sufficient. More needs to be done quickly to mitigate the effects of Malware and to encourage the continual and healthy growth of e-Business.
