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:

  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 (IoT) devices to launch massive DDoS attacks.

Little doubt that improved employee training can reduce much of these cyber problems.
