What are the most popular types of malware?

Researchers are looking for the most common types of malware.

In investigating malicious activities, cyberspace researchers focus mainly on three types of malware: Trojans (25%), backdoors (24%) and malware installers (23%).

LimeRAT Trojan-excel malware

This is according to data collected by security company Kaspersky, the most popular malware.

However, Trojans are said to be by far the most common type of malware, with backdoors and dropper accounting for only 7% and 3% of all malicious files respectively.

Although there is a discrepancy between the search volume and the number of events, Kaspersky believes there is a logical explanation. According to the company, many attacks are ruled out by endpoint products - and therefore do not require further analysis. Threats that are less common, meanwhile, require further research.

"We have noticed that the number of free requests to Kaspersky Threat Intelligence Portal for virus control or tracks code introduced to others programs, is extremely low - less than one percent, but traditionally is among the most common threats identified by endpoint solutions, "said Denis Parinov, deputy head of Threats Monitoring and Heuristic Detection.

"This threat is repetitive and encrypts its code in other files, which can lead to a large number of malicious cases. files in an infected system. As we can see, viruses rarely interest them researchers, most likely because they lack innovation compared to other threats. "
