Late last year, Trend Micro introduced its Security Predictions for 2018. One of the predictions stated that digital extortion will be at the core of most cybercriminals’ business model. It’s much more than just ransomware – it is the most successful criminal business model in the current threat landscape.

Valuable information is accessible throughout corporate networks in ways not previously considered and vulnerabilities across the IT landscape could provide an entry point for attackers to damage the integrity or accessibility of critical data.

Earlier this week, Trend Micro released new research that can help educate businesses and individuals, particularly in high risk industries like healthcare and manufacturing, on the breadth of digital extortion, what is targeted, and how to mitigate the risks. Learn how digital extortion figures into the threat landscape this year by reading “Digital Extortion: A Forward-looking View.”

There are 17 new zero-day filters covering eight vendors in this week’s Digital Vaccine (DV) package. A number of existing filters in this week’s DV package were modified to update the filter description, update specific filter deployment recommendation, increase filter accuracy and/or optimize performance.
