The latest state of malware report for 2024 has been released and it is highly recommended to read. Here are the key takeaways:

– Ransomware continues to dominate the threats landscape, with Lockbit as a top player, but other ransomware variants are catching up.

– Malvertising is making a resurgence as attackers target both businesses and consumers with sophisticated fake ads, especially since Macros are now blocked.

– The use of Zero Day exploits by CLOP ransomware gangs demonstrates a new level of sophistication in ransomware attacks, signaling a shift in how ransomware can scale.

– Cyber criminals are using legitimate tools for malicious purposes, known as Living Off The Land (LOTL) attacks, making it difficult to detect their activities.

– Android banking Trojans are disguising themselves as legitimate apps to steal banking credentials and funds directly from accounts.

The report emphasizes the importance of preparation in tackling these evolving threats. It highlights the need for an integrated security approach, combining skilled professionals with advanced software.
