impact rating (malicious code) legacy definition

This is the compounded affect of the impact of each action performed by the malicious code. It is calculated by ordering the individual payload impact ratings from highest to lowest, setting the overall impact to the highest rating, then incrementally adding to the overall rating the scaled difference between each lesser impact rating and the last.
