State Of Malware Report 2017

State Of Malware Report 2017

The year 2016 saw, yet again, the threats malware posed:

1. Ransomware grabbed headlines and became the favorite attack methodology used against businesses.

2. Ad fraud malware, led by Kovter malware, exceeded ransomware detections at times and poses a substantial threat to consumers and businesses.

3. Botnets infected and recruited Internet of Things devices to launch massive DDoS attacks.

and the same trend is expected to occur in 2017.
