overall impact (malicious code)

This is the compounded effect of the impacts of each action performed by a 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.
