Infographic: Ransomware Makes up Small Share of Growing Malware Threat | Statista

Another ransomware attack could mean life online gets scarier (surely nothing to do BO, one hopes); the latest seems to be about causing chaos rather than extorting money: that said, causing chaos means sites that are down can't make money! [edited]. Despite two recent 'global' attacks ransomware is still below 1% of online offenders. This chart found HERE. "Malware has come a long way in the last ten years... ...the number of new malware specimen is likely to reach more than 7.4 million this year alone. Albeit this number seems to spell bad news only, the data also indicates that the malware growth rate is slowing."
