What Will Recover the Stock of CA Techs (NASDAQ:CA)? Windows Scan Rogue?

ca_logo.jpgJanuary 26 was a rather difficult day for CA Technologies (NASDAQ:CA, CA message board), an IT management software and solutions company with expertise across all IT environments. As the company announced its third quarter results, it showed better earnings than it had expected. However, investors became concerned about decreasing operating margins and bookings. And this affected the stock.

CA_chart.jpgCA stock drastically tumbled down to $23.44 with the volume of almost 18 million shares. Since then, the stock seems to be getting back to its track. After the last trade, it jumped up by 2.26% and reached the price of $24.35. Just some more time and the stock might be able to retrieve what it has lost just after a single trade.

Despite that, cyber criminals seem to be on the wave of attacking the web, and thus creating more work to companies like CA Techs.
This time they have released a rogueware named Windows Scan, which has showed up on January 24th and seems to be still on the stage (in case you have problems related to this malicious application, follow the removal instructions). Every single day, the creators of malware of this kind become more powerful, and in this way Internet security companies have to prove that their products are worth something.

Despite that, security companies are expected to show what they can do concerning the question of computer security. Besides, it's not a secret that a rogueware, or any other kind of threat, could affect the image of any company which provides service  like cleaning machines from malware.

Maybe, in the case of CA Technologies, the rogueware Windows Scan will be able to improve the performance of the company? We just need some time till the Q4 shows up.
