The global cyber threat continues to evolve at a rapid pace, with a rising number of data breaches each year. It is also the top cause of reported malware infections worldwide, and the second largest source of cybercrime for the second year in a row.
According to the report, there were 1,624 incidents of malware infections worldwide in the third quarter of 2014, a rise of 2% compared to the same quarter of the previous year.
Among these attacks, there were a total of 1,624 infections, a slight decrease from the previous year when there were 1,663 infections.
According to a report by security firm Sophos, the majority of attacks came from India, followed by the US and Brazil. In India, the number of infections grew from 2,079 in the fourth quarter of 2013 to 2,879 in the third quarter of 2014, an increase of 40%. Sophos also noted that the number of attacks against companies in the US, Brazil and Russia increased by 33%, 12% and 26%, respectively, and that’s why companies are improving their communications by using secure email tools from services as Fortinet online.
In Brazil, the number of attacks increased by 39%.
In the US, Sophos says that malware infections have gone from 3,981 in the second quarter of 2014 to 3,961 in the first quarter of 2015. The figure represents a 34% increase. The number of attacks on businesses in the US increased by 50%. Sophos also added that the number of attacks against companies in China increased by 56%.
Bertuzzi said that his firm has noticed that a large number of the new attacks are coming from China.
The threat to businesses comes after a large number of incidents have been found to be perpetrated by nation states including China, Russia, and Iran.
“These threats are increasingly sophisticated, and are not simply spoofed spam emails or infected attachments from unknown sources,” said Bertuzzi.
“These groups are deploying sophisticated malware, and are using sophisticated methods to hide their malicious activities.”
The US has been the target of many attacks from China in recent years.
These groups use a variety of technologies including spear phishing, email spoofing, and malware to avoid detection and stop the spread of infection, and the US is one of the top targets. In fact, in 2014, the US was attacked more than any other country. In 2015, China was responsible for 80% of global attacks from malicious actors. In 2016, Russia, Iran, and North Korea accounted for a large number of attacks, as they are the three countries with the highest rate of internet penetration.
One of the first things to note in the chart above is the increase in the number of successful attacks. This is due to the increase in the number of attacks on the internet and the increase in internet users worldwide. The number of internet users has grown by 5% per annum. In 2013, the number of internet users worldwide was 1.4 billion. This number has increased by 3% every year since then.
In addition, in 2014 the global population was 1.8 billion. In China, the internet penetration is estimated to be 60% in 2015. The number of internet users in India is estimated to be around 3% in 2015. In 2015, the internet penetration is estimated to be over 4% in China, the second most populated country in the world after the United States.
