2017 will long be remembered as the year of information breaches. It was also a year of security analysis in enterprise security and multiple geopolitical events that corresponded with major malware spikes. From elections to North Korea nuclear threats and missile launches, it seems likely that cyber actors are using geopolitical events to achieve cyber activism and other goals.
Comodo launched quarterly threat reports throughout 2017, and the Comodo 2017 Global Malware Report summarizes our key findings for the year, analyzing malware patterns across countries, industries and events. Among our discoveries:
Trojans Are the No. 1 Malware Threat
Trojans were detected in 225 countries in 2017, with Russia being the No. 1 recipient, receiving 9% of all Trojan detections. Russia also led the world in backdoors and worm detections, while the U.S. led the world in application threats, including unsafe and unwanted applications, viruses and packer malware. Russia and the U.S. were the No. 1 and 2 countries for malware detections in 2017, while online services and technology were the No. 1 and 2 most targeted verticals.
Backdoors Rise While Other Threats Decline
Comodo witnessed a rise in backdoor threats in Q4 2017 and predicts that they will continue to rise in Q1 2018. Other malware patterns remained even or declined in Q4 2017.
Malware Spikes Occur in Sync with Geopolitical Events
Geopolitical events in multiple regions coincided with malware increases throughout the year. While Comodo cannot prove causation, we can demonstrate correlation between geopolitical issues and diverse malware attacks, including:
