Internet Security Threat Report

Infrastructure Attacks, Stealthy Mining

Symantec has just released its 2018 Internet Security Threat Report which provides insights into global threat activity, cyber-criminal trends and motivations for attackers. The report is based on data from Symantec’s Global Intelligence Network, which Symantec analysts use to identify, analyze and provide commentary on emerging trends in attacks, malicious code activity, phishing and spam.

While there is much to be learned from this comprehensive view into the threat landscape, the following are three key trends:

  • Mobile threats continue to rise. New mobile malware variants increased by 54 percent in 2017.
  • New sectors are under attack. The software supply chain experiences a 200 percent increase in malware implants and overall IoT attacks increased 600 percent.
  • Spear phishing still works. Last year, 71 percent of all target attacks started with spear phishing.
