The Latest Intelligence page has been refreshed through May 2016, providing the most up-to-date analysis of cybersecurity threats, trends, and insights concerning malware, spam, and other potentially harmful business risks. Here are some key takeaways from this latest batch of intelligence.
The Angler toolkit, which had consistently ranked second in our list of web attacks by toolkit, came out on top in May, comprising 51.2 percent of all toolkit activity. The Nuclear exploit kit, which topped April’s list, has dropped out of the top five this month, likely due to research that was published in late April, shedding light on the toolkit’s infrastructure and likely leading to disruptions. This follows the disappearance of the Spartan toolkit from our top five list in April. The Spartan toolkit had also previously topped the list of web attacks by toolkit.
