Malware is the name given to all forms of malicious software, including viruses, worms, spyware, adware, and ransomware. Unfortunately, as our technology becomes more sophisticated, so does the malware created by cybercriminals, and today, the software is more of a threat to businesses than ever before. In particular, ransomware, the form of malware that extorts money from its victims by locking them out of their computer files, has risen sharply in the last few years, with recent reports showing that at least 40% of businesses experienced attacks in the last year.
In its State of Malware Report 2017, security firm Malwarebytes reported, Ransomware distribution between January 2016 and November 2016 increased by 267 percent. This is an unprecedented domination of the threat landscape - like nothing we've seen before. The financial impact of such attacks is staggering - even those who don't pay the ransom still lose thousands to millions of dollars due to loss of productivity, and the U.S. experiences more attacks than any other country in the world. Ad fraud malware has also hit the U.S. particularly hard, reports Malwarebytes. If this worldwide epidemic continues unchecked, Cybersecurity Ventures, a cybersecurity research firm, predicts cybercrime will cost the world in excess of $6 trillion annually by 2021.
