What Are Blended Threats?
A blended threat is a more sophisticated attack that bundles some of the worst aspects of viruses, worms, Trojan horses and malicious code into one single threat. Blended threats can use server and Internet vulnerabilities to initiate, then transmit and also spread an attack. Basically it can cause damage within several areas of your network at one time.
Blended threats cause harm to the infected system or network, they propagates using multiple methods, the attack can come from multiple points, and blended threats also exploit vulnerabilities. The attack would normally serve to transport multiple attacks in one payload. For example it wouldn't just launch a DoS attack, it would also install a backdoor and maybe even damage a local system in one shot. So, while a worm may travel and spread through e-mail, a single blended threat could use multiple routes including e-mail, IRC and file-sharing sharing networks.
