Another retrospective of 2019’s threat landscape

Submitted by • February 26, 2020

If looking at the past helps prepare you for the present, here is another cybersecurity retrospective to boost your cyberpreparedness…

OpenText has issued its 2020 Webroot Threat Report for last year, highlighting not only the agility and innovation of cybercriminals who continue to seek out new ways to evade defenses, but also their commitment to long-established attack methods.

The 2020 Webroot Threat Report presents analyses, findings and insights from the Webroot Threat Research team on the state of cyber threats. Among those expected to have significant impact on the cyberthreat landscape into 2020 and beyond are:

Phishing URLs encountered grew by 640% in 2019
1 in 4 malicious URLs was hosted on an otherwise non-malicious domain
8.9 million URLs were found hosting a cryptojacking script
The top sites impersonated by phishing sites or cybercriminals are Facebook, Microsoft, Apple, Google, PayPal and DropBox
