More than 12.7 million high risk email threats were blocked in 2019 by one global security firm, with 11 million of the emails phishing-related, making up 89% of all blocked emails.
Australia continues to be a malware target, with 9.2 million malware detections in the first half of 2019 - with malicious URLs also proving a popular form of attack, as the number of times a malicious URL was accessed reached 8.9 million, according to a new global security report.
The financial impact of ransomware rose by 60% in 2018, losses from business email compromise (BEC) doubled, cryptojacking incidents - the unauthorised use of others’ computing resources to conduct cryptomining - more than tripled, and there continued to be a steady stream of high-profile data breaches, according to a report from the Internet Society’s Online Trust Alliance.
