Over 25,000 ransomware infections were reported daily on Windows in the third quarter this year while malware detection count stood at over 199 million — a drop of 11 per cent in comparison to the second quarter, a new report has said.
The “Quarterly Threat Report” from IT security solutions provider Quick Heal Security Labs detected over two million Android infections — a rise of 40 per cent from the previous quarter.
The researchers warned that newer and advanced variants of “Locky” ransomware families are expected to rise with attackers increasingly using ransomware-as-a-service due to its user-friendliness and high return on investments.
“Our threat reports are an attempt to provide insights on the threat landscape with the objective of facilitating a safe and secure digital journey of our customers,” Sanjay Katkar, Joint Managing Director and Chief Technology Officer, Quick Heal, said on Thursday.

Massey University PhD student Natalia D’Souza studied the experiences of nurses and found that no longer was it just traditional face-to-face bullying they had to deal with but that cyber bullying was becoming an increasing problem.
Of the eight bullied nurses D’Souza interviewed, seven of them had experienced both forms during their careers.
While other research showed many nurses experienced bullying from other staff, she was concerned to find many had been attacked by students they had taught,
Nearly every person in the country has been hacked and had their details sold on the dark web, Britain’s police lead on cyber crime revealed yesterday.
Chief Constable Peter Goodman issued the stark warning on rampant computer hacking as he urged firms to come clean to customers when their security has been compromised.
The Derbyshire chief revealed he has been personally targeted three times by thieves who stole his name, date of birth, address and email.
