Today, we are releasing our Internet Security Report for Q2 2017. Each quarter, we analyze data from our Firebox UTM appliances deployed around the world in order to determine the latest computer and network security threats affecting small to midsize businesses (SMBs) and distributed enterprises. Additionally, in our latest report we analyze the WannaCry Ransomworm and discuss findings from our SSH and Telnet honeypots.
Some of this report’s highlights include:
- Nearly half of all malware is able to circumvent legacy AV solutions
- Attacks aimed at credential theft are growing
- Older tools like Mimikatz are making a comeback
- Brute force login attacks against web servers are on the rise
WatchGuard’s Internet Security Report uses anonymized Firebox Feed data from tens of thousands of active WatchGuard UTM appliances worldwide. In Q2 2017, these appliances blocked more than 11 million malware variants with WatchGuard’s Gateway AV solution, while WatchGuard’s APT Blocker caught an additional 5.4 million malware variants. Meanwhile, WatchGuard Fireboxes stopped nearly 3 million network attacks in Q2.
