In 2021, the spread of malware was not only a massive threat to users but also the network fraud that was developing against the backdrop of the pandemic. Fraudsters actively used the topic of vaccination and social restrictions. At the same time, cybercriminals continued to use their well-known techniques: phishing, spam mailings, and social engineering methods. Malicious software also did not give up its positions in the past year and was actively spreading. According to statistics, Dr.Web anti-virus software most often neutralized various trojans, malicious scripts, miners, and other spying programs. Android mobile device owners didn’t go unnoticed either. The attackers actively distributed malicious applications using various means, including the Google Play catalog. Doctor Web virus analysts continued to investigate cyber incidents and study sophisticated malware for targeted attacks. Read about these and other events in the final malware activity review over the past year on our website.
