According to Kaspersky Lab’s 2014 IT Security Risks summary report, conducted in collaboration with B2B International, 94 per cent of companies have experienced some form of external security incident within the past 12 months. But despite this nearly-universal rate of encounters with cybercrime, businesses tend to prioritise IT spending – which includes IT security – quite differently depending on their size.
According to the Monthly Report on Online Threats in the Banking Sector for the period 19 May -19 June 2014, a peak in malware activity was registered in Brazil. Kaspersky Lab technology blocked 87,776 attempts to launch malicious programs in the country, which is four times higher than Russia, which stands in the second place.
Encrypting ransomware – a type of malware which encrypts user data and then demands ransom for decryption – is now being implemented in a new way, according to Kaspersky Lab research. Kaspersky Lab calls the malware the “Onion” ransomware because it uses the anonymous network Tor (the Onion Router) to hide its malicious nature and to make it hard to track those behind this ongoing malware campaign.
