Until just a few years ago, the iSeries was used almost exclusively in a closed environment, and the OS/400 operating system provided the
strongest data and system security in the world. But times have changed. In today’s world of PCs, distributed databases, the Internet and web technologies, closed computing environments are all but extinct. Technological advances opened up the iSeries to the rest of the world, but in the process, brought with it many of the security risks inherent in distributed environments, leading to a shocking discovery. Although the iSeries AS/400 doesn’t run. exe files, it can house infected files – where they can wait, silently and deadly, until someone on the network transfers and opens that file on their PC.
