The number of users attacked by ransomware targeting Android-based devices has increased four-fold in just one year, hitting at least 136,000 users globally. A report on the ransomware threat landscape, conducted by Kaspersky Lab, also found that the majority of attacks are based on only four groups of malware. The report covers a full two-year period which, for reasons of comparison, has been divided into two parts of 12 months each: from April 2014 to March 2015, and April 2015 to March 2016. These particular timescales were chosen because they witnessed several significant changes in the mobile ransomware threat landscape.
Kaspersky Lab, the official sponsor of Scuderia Ferrari, is pleased to congratulate the team on its success at the Formula One Grand Prix of Malaysia. Having started from second on the grid, Sebastian Vettel delivered Scuderia Ferrari’s first win of the season. His teammate Kimi Raikkonen finished fourth.
Commenting on the considerable victory, Alexander Moiseev, Managing Director Europe of Kaspersky Lab, said: “In Malaysia, the Ferrari team showed a real will to win and we congratulate Scuderia on this. We are highly inspired by the energy and drive of both Sebastian Vettel and Ferrari. Our common values – spirit for inventions, a dedication to new technologies and a commitment to achieving goals – is what empowers us to continue the sponsorship, year after year. I’m sure this triumph will be the first of many and that the racing season for 2015 will prove to be a winning one”.
