Q4 2018 Threat Report: Beware! Multilayered Attacks on the Rise
For a year that began with the discovery of Spectre and Meltdown vulnerabilities, 2018 had the potential to be one of the worst years for cybersecurity attacks. Yet, the worst didn’t as those vulnerabilities were mitigated for two reasons: Spectre and Meltdown are difficult to exploit and the rapid patch creation.
Still, we’d like to view 2018 as the year of awareness, a year that began with the knowledge of those vulnerabilities and recognition that hardware and software are getting better at reacting to new threats.
Over the latter half of 2018, we’ve seen how malware creators continue to innovate in a number of ways. Specifically, we’re seeing two types of complexity with new malware attacks: multilayered, synced attacks and a rise in the volume of functionality. Read the latest Threat Report for Q4 2018 to learn how these new trends will affect how organizations defend their networks against attacks.
