PostSubject: Trojans are the Fastest-growing Data-stealing Malware: Trend Micro   Thu Jul 09, 2009 11:36 am

It is a sign of the times we are living in. Information is the real currency today, and justifiably
occupies a prime position in the priority list of malware producers. In 2007, 52 percent of
data-stealing malware were Trojans; in 2008, that number increased to 87 percent, according
to a recent company report titled ‘Focus Report - Data Stealing Malware.’

As of the first quarter of 2009, 93 percent of data-stealing malware were Trojans.
In addition, Trojans and Trojan spyware were found to be the predominant type of
data-stealing malware in every region monitored by Trend Labs (Trend Micro's research arm)
including Australia, Asia, Africa, South America, North America, and Europe.

Virtually anyone with a computer and Internet access can wreak havoc, states the research by
Trend Labs. Further, the data-stealing malware problem strikes small-to-medium businesses
particularly hard.
