    Online threats and malware have been plaguing Internet users for more than 20 years now. While today’s cybercsecurity headlines often refer to the latest data breaches, Facebook scams, and the 1410% increase in the Android malware volume, it is interesting to note that the tools cybercriminals use today are, in a sense, the BRAIN-child (pun intended) of two Pakistani brothers who ironically wanted to do good and to prevent software piracy. From the PC boom in the 1980s to the rise of the Internet and connectivity from the 1990s to the 2000s, Trend Micro has been closely monitoring technological advancements in information exchange as well as how malware and online threats grew from their roots as pesky computer viruses to the notorious information-stealing programs of today.

    At present, Trend Micro sees 3.5 new threats per second. As more and more businesses and home users take the inevitable journey to the cloud, risks of data and financial loss are greater than ever. Trend Micro also continues to uncover cybercrime operations and how bad guys earn millions of dollars, pointing to an underground economy that matures with time.

    Our new infographic, “Threat Morphosis: The Shifting Motivations Behind Digital Threats,” offers a look into the evolving cybercrime motivations and the resulting shifts in the threat landscape through the years.
