Playbooks, sometimes known as Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) or runbooks, are used for troubleshooting common issues. They are often created by a team of employees who are trained to manage security issues. Playbooks often include bulleted lists, step-by-step instructions, or diagrams, all of which make it easy to follow troubleshooting instructions.
Throughout the next 4 weeks, you will develop a playbook for a fictional company that hired you to write their playbook and manage the team. The first portion of the playbook is a response to malware found at the company.

–Provide details of the malware.
–Identify the exploited vulnerability and its attack vector.
–Analyze the vulnerability to determine 2 risks of this malware.
–Outline step-by-step instructions on how to resolve the malware attack.
*Remember, numbered or bulleted steps or guidelines make the document easy for others to follow under potentially stressful situations. Paragraphs can be used to help support the steps and guidelines.
