Malwarebytes examined almost “one billion malware detections/incidences…in nearly 100 million Windows and Android devices…in over 200 countries” to make its 2017 State of Malware Report which included these three takeaways:
- Ransomware grabbed headlines and became the favorite attack methodology used against businesses.
- Ad fraud malware, led by Kovter malware, exceeded ransomware detections at times and poses a substantial threat to consumers and businesses.
- Botnets infected and recruited Internet of Things (IoT) devices to launch massive DDoS attacks.
Little doubt that improved employee training can reduce much of these cyber problems.
