As we shift to 2018, questions still exist regarding the politics and possibility of a hacked democracy, but one thing is abundantly clear – 2017 saw several large-scale cyberattacks including WannaCry, NotPetya, and BadRabbit demonstrating that ransomware is not going anywhere. Ransomware is now estimated to be a $5 billion crime, according to recent research from Cybersecurity Ventures. 

Ransomware, combined with the continued ubiquity of mass malware and non-malware attacks, is creating a vast attack surface for cyberattackers, who are getting more creative and persistent.

To better understand the evolving attack landscape as we head into 2018, the Carbon Black Threat Analysis Unit (TAU) researched the current state of ransomware, malware, and non-malware attacks. In particular we looked at how, and how frequently, Carbon Black customers have been targeted. In this report the TAU also provides some predictions for 2018.
