Russian antivirus solutions provider Kaspersky Lab forecasts an increase in the activity of cryptomining malware in 2019, as well as the growth of mobile malware, in particular of 'Banker Trojans'.
Axar.az reports citing TASS.
"The statistics shows that the landscape of cyber threats has changed in 2018. For example, cryptomining malicious computer programs have become more popular. Cyber criminals are using the topic of cryptocurrencies and ICOs more often - they create phishing resources, which emulate popular cryptocurrency wallets and exchanges and also forge accounts of well-known personalities and companies promising free distribution of cryptocurrency on their behalf," Timur Biyachuyev, anti-malware research director at Kaspersky lab said as quoted in the report.
According to the company’s forecast, in 2019, the growth of cryptomining malware will continue in 2019, as well as a surge in the number of mobile malware, in particular - of Banker Trojans.
At the same time, it is likely that mass encryption will be much less used in mass cyberattacks in 2019, the experts predict.
