Updated: Infrastructure Planning and Design (IPD) Guide for Malware Response from Microsoft

The new Infrastructure Planning and Design Guide for Malware Response is now live.

The IPD Guide will help organizations plan the best and most cost-effective response to malicious software. This guide provides methodologies for the assessment of malware incidents, walks the reader through considerations and decisions that are pertinent to timely response and recovery. It also describes approaches to investigating outbreaks and cleaning infected systems.

When a malware attack occurs, there are a number of factors that must be considered quickly and simultaneously to restore service to the system. Some of these factors are, indeed, conflicting. Understanding how the system was compromised, while simultaneously returning the system to operation as quickly as possible, is a common conflicting issue that this guide addresses. This malware response guide does not resolve this conflict; the reader must do so based on the priorities of the business.

The Malware Response Guide includes:

– Step 1: Confirm the Infection
– Step 2: Determine the Course of Action
– Step 3: Attempt to Clean the System
– Step 4: Attempt to Restore the System State
– Step 5: Rebuild the System
– Step 6: Conduct Post Attack Review
