Protect Data and Stop Threats – Security Designed Around Your Outcomes

McAfee Labs Threats Report: December 2018

In this edition, McAfee highlight news and statistics gathered by the McAfee® Advanced Threat Research and McAfee® Labs teams in the third quarter of 2018. More than a year after the takedowns of the AlphaBay and Hansa markets, we still see their impact on the dark web. McAfee analysts look at how things are changing and report hot topics from underground hacker forums. This quarter, we are excited to introduce several new threats statistics, such as IoT malware, that represent some of the growing trends in attacks.

McAfee’s latest research includes:

Market takedowns cause ripple effect on the dark web: Sellers are moving away from larger exchanges to open their own specific marketplaces. Some are also leaving Tor for new communications platforms, such as Telegram.
The shift to cryptomining continues to surge: Total coin miner malware jumped 71% with more than 3.8 million new samples, including new malware families targeting MacOS.
IoT is a growing malware target: We have added new charts this quarter looking at IoT malware, which was up 72.5% in Q3 and more than 200% in the past year.
