Symantec threat report

Extract from a blog article for AVIEN: UK threat prevalence – Symantec

John Leyden for The Register has summarized Symantec’s latest Internet Security Threat Report, and focuses on UK-specific figures for threat prevalence: Spear phishers target gullible Brits more than anyone else – survey; Ransomware, 0days, malware, scams… all are up, says Symantec.

Longer extract added to the tech support scam and ransomware resources pages, but there are a few thoughts in the longer article that didn’t really fit either of those pages.

I haven’t checked out the report directly as it requires registration, and I’m fussy about giving my details away where marketing information is mandatory.
