For our last section on Software development Security, we look at malicious software and define several key terms. For example, we clarify the difference between virus and worms, we look at spyware and define what it does and how it differs from adware, and define with examples what rootkits are. And finally, we take a detailed examination for SEI-CMMI by defining it, exploring its development, and why it's adopted as a best practice standard. As the wrap up to Module 8, Software development Security , we review each of the subsections covered, cover testable information for the CISSP exam, with a particular focus on key areas that should be studied.
