Every quarter, Malwarebytes release a report on the threat landscape around the world. We like to review these and share the key takeaways with you, so you know what to look out for and why we may be recommending a specific security tactic.
Malwarebytes recently released their latest Cybersecurity Tactics and Techniques report and took a deep dive into what dominated the threat landscape in Australia, making predictions for 2018.
The key takeaways were:
Ransomware volume was up in 2017, but trending downward
What they can’t hold for ransom, criminals will steal instead
Cryptomining is out of control
Cybercriminals got creative with their delivery methods in 2017
Many customers trust they’re protected, but the truth is, traditional AV solutions are continually shown as ineffective in blocking new malware threats. Malwarebytes know this and can report on this because of the half-million daily consumers who use Malwarebytes’ free remediation tool to clean their devices.
