Our summary of notable malware research is now available in our Threat Report for H1 2012, covering January to July. 2012 has seen some very significant milestones. From Mikko's foreword:
"Just like modern hi-tech research revolutionized military operations over the last 50 years, we are going to see a new revolution, focusing on information operations and cyber warfare. This revolution is underway and it�s happening right now."
"It's important to understand that cyber warfare does not necessarily have anything to do with the Internet."
But don't let the talk of warfare distract you, criminals were still as busy as ever. Our report includes the following case studies:
• ZeuS & Spyeye • Flashback • Blackhole • Mobile Threats • Ransomware • Rogueware
