Happy Halloween! Ready for a really good scare? Check out our latest infographic titled “The Scariest Cyber Security Threats.” Our clever team of researchers have created this creepy artwork by comparing the traditional frightening Halloween characters with their associated cyber threats.
For example, vampires compare quite well to online banking Trojans that “suck cash out of your accounts.” Zombies in the “reel world” of Hollywood Halloween movies were the role models for hackers who created their own zombies—“mindless creatures that are controlled by botmasters who make them do their [nefarious] bidding.”
“Ghosts” represent targeted attacks that are designed to be neither seen nor heard. Our research indicates that for this type of attack, the average time from initial breach to detection has increased dramatically over the past couple of years.
