Trojans, Backdoors and Droppers the Top Three Malware Globally?



According to a few recent surveys and analysis conducted by some well-known and influential cybersecurity agencies, there are approximately 3 top malwares that the users should be aware of. 

'Gate-crashing' enterprises and users globally are Trojans, Backdoors, and Droppers which comprise 72 percent of the total cyber-attacks across the globe, as per anonymized statistics from free requests from Kaspersky Threat Intelligence Portal. 

The statistics likewise show that the different sorts of malware that researchers most frequently examine and investigate don't harmonize with the most widespread ones. 

By and large, submitted hashes or dubious uploaded files ended up being Trojans (25 percent of requests), Backdoors, a malware that gives an attacker remote control over a computer (24 percent), and Trojan-Droppers (23 percent) that install different malignant objects. 

Denis Parinov, Acting Head of Threats Monitoring and Heuristic Detection explains "We have noticed that the number of free requests to the Kaspersky Threat Intelligence Portal to check viruses or pieces of code that insert themselves in over other programs, is extremely low less than one percent, but it is traditionally among the most widespread threats detected by endpoint solutions," 

Later added, “Viruses are rarely of interest to researchers, most likely because they lack novelty compared to other threats." 

Despite the fact that Trojans are typically the most widespread type of malware, however, Backdoors and Trojan-Droppers are not as common as they just make up 7 percent and 3 percent of every malevolent file blocked by the Kaspersky endpoint products. 

The researchers say, "This difference can be explained by the fact that researchers are often interested in the final target of the attack, while endpoint protection products are seeking to prevent it at an early stage," 

Nonetheless, in order to develop response and remediation measures, security analysts need to distinguish the objective of the attack, the root of a malignant object, its prominence, and at the end, the report specified that it's the security researchers who need to identify all components within the dropper.

State of the Art Cyber-Security and Network Security a Top Priority for The Business Market



Reportedly, accepting the growing need for better cyber-security tactics and embracing a further developed regime for securing the businesses on the cyber front, European organizations are up for upgrading their network security.

With a high rise in the number of cyber-crime, mainly data breaches, and other infamous cyber-attacks it’s become the need of the hour to promote more initiatives regarding data safety.

By taking upon themselves the idea of spending more on modern security techniques and solutions, the European businesses are investing truly in lucrative methods of counteracting cyber-crime.

Along with getting into partnerships with their local governments, network security is one of the major focuses of the organizations with allegedly an expected compound annual growth rate of over 15% by 2025 in the field.

Protecting data integrity, guarding businesses against any virus or malware attacks, stabilizing the critical business networks and shielding against any unwanted intrusions are a few of the major missions.

Network management has indeed become difficult owing it to the technological advancements, multiplication in the variety of devices and intricate network structures and hence network monitoring tools have become imperative.


Long gone are the days of traditional solutions to not so traditional cyber-hazards and cyber-insecurities. Antiquated prevention systems are obviously failing at keeping cyber-crime at bay.

Reportedly, large amounts of random alerts are generated everyday but go unnoticed which leads to “classes of risky connected devices” going without proper monitoring, analyses and management.


Per sources, analysis of network security has got to be of paramount importance to any business that wishes to successfully and safely function in these imminently digital times.

Finding out what the actual threats are, reducing noise, realizing their motives and ultimately being ready for them when (if) they arrive at all is the smartest decision any organization could make.

The banking sector, per reports is one of the leading turfs to become cyber-active and cyber-ready. With all the e-commerce platforms and cyber-banking being a huge part of the digital game the investments are supposed face a gigantic hike in the coming years.

Cyber-attacks have several repercussions to them that they leave behind after wreaking the primary havoc. Financial damages, tarnished images, dissatisfaction between customers, clients and other stakeholders are at the top of the list.

With improved and upgraded cyber-awareness regimes and cyber-security solutions owing it to better analytics, all the enterprises from large to smaller ones shall definitely be more lucrative than ever.
