CARO 2019

Monitoring threat trends on a global scale can be beneficial, however, it can sometimes also be misleading. Jan Sirmer, Malware Analysis Team Lead, illustrated his findings from comparing global data of Android detections, using three major regions as examples: Europe, North America and Russia. The data presented clearly shows a significant drop in less sophisticated malware strains, such as downloaders and rooters, which dominated Android threats in past years. On the other hand, the data shows a rise in technically advanced and covert malware; such as bankers, fake apps or even targeted attacks. In his presentation Jan showed how understanding the trend evolution helps predict, prevent and detect new malware strains.
