The new malware landscape — living on borrowed time

Safenetting

User Group Network UGN Safenetting and cyber world report We recently talked about a new malware that doesn’t care if you have a Mac or a PeeCee — and another that is now specifically targeting iPhone users. With the popularity of Apple products, the cybercrime industry has found a rich new hunting ground in Apple users.

There are over 1 million new strains of malware created every day. You no longer have to be attacked in order to be infected with malware. You can pick up malware easier than you can catch a cold, or pick up a bug at the day-care center. Just log into some web sites. On average, over 30,000 SME websites are targeted each day, and to make matters worse, nearly 60% of their IT professionals think they aren’t at any real risk of being attacked.

Yet, email still poses a frightening risk. Too many people trust their email, and a cleverly configured email can get you in real trouble. Read the piece below about ransomware. It’s running rampant — and much is delivered via an attachment in email.

We surveyed the spam traps this morning and found 12 malware-laden emails, and a bank-spoof phishing email that ALSO had the malware component.

This is why we produced these Infographics for you to post and distribute.
