An analyst who wants to eliminate or mitigate a malware’s infection vector might be interested in classifying malware based on vector dependencies and spreading mechanisms, while someone who wants to build a computing infrastructure might be more interested in classifying malware based on target OS, target device, and type of victims the malware is after. In most cases, an understanding of all these classes is needed to secure an organization.
