Trojans are still winning. Out of the 12 Threat Reports over Q3, six were trojans. While the results from the Threat Report quarterly from Q2 2018 were pretty even in terms of the volume of threats being spread out between APTs, ransomware and trojans, Q3 2018 showcased the depth and breadth of trojan diversity and malicious innovation.
As the most successful attacks, trojans are getting smarter as their developers are getting more organized or, in several apparently state sponsored attacks, more multi-layered. In Q3, we saw the growth of multi-layered attacks as well as several attacks designed to infect computing devices in particular regions.
