The FireEye Advanced Threat Report analyses more than 40,000 advanced attacks across the globe to map out the latest trends in advanced persistent threat (APT) attacks. Leveraging real-time threat intelligence from millions of security alerts across customer deployments, FireEye tracked more than 160 distinct APT malware families and logged 22 million command-and-control (CnC) transmissions. This report correlates that intelligence to provide insight that spans countries, industries, and threat vectors.
Key findings include:
- The top ten countries most frequently targeted by APTs;
- The most verticals that were targeted (by number of unique malware families);
- The top threat vectors used;
- Top software exploited in zero-day attacks.
