An increase in malware activity and other events of October 2020

November 09, 2020

Doctor Web presents its October 2020 overview of malware activity. In October, the number of detected threats decreased by over a third compared to the previous month. According to statistics, adware and trojan installers remained among the most common threats. Email traffic was dominated by a multi-module banker, as well as by malware that exploits vulnerabilities in Microsoft Office programs. Users also continued to be threatened by malicious HTML documents often disguised as harmless email attachments. The number of user requests to decrypt files affected by encoders remained at September levels. Read more about these and other events in our October review.
