CYREN Publishes 2013 Internet Security Yearbook


-- Report provides Internet security highlights for past year, offers 2014 outlook

MCLEAN, Virginia, March 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- CYREN today published its first annual CYREN Security Yearbook that offers a comprehensive look back at last year's Internet security trends. The report also includes a glimpse into upcoming trends for 2014, noting a continued increase in mobile malware, ransomware and targeted attacks. The CYREN Security Yearbook illustrates the strength of the company's data capabilities that enable its partners and end users to remain one step ahead of dangerous threats.


In 2013, the CYREN GlobalView™ Cloud analyzed more than four trillion security transactions worldwide â€�“ averaging 10 to 15 billion transactions per day. Using an industry leading cloud-based approach, CYREN's GlobalView Security Cloud and patented Recurrent Pattern Detection™ (RPD™) technology make threat data immediately available to endpoints around the globe â€�“ providing up-to-date spam classifications, URL categorization, and malware detection services that consistently keep end customers protected.

The CYREN GlobalView Lab compiled 2013 key statistics and summarized the findings within the Security Yearbook, delivering a unique look into the security landscape "below the headlines."  

In 2013, CYREN noted a marked increase in mobile malware, with a targeted focus on Android devices (173,000 unique new Android malware variants per month) as well as ransomware campaigns where victims were called to pay "unlocking fees" to regain access to hacked computers.

Other highlights in the CYREN Security Yearbook include:

  • The number of phishing websites increased by 264% in 2013. PayPal was the number one target of phishing campaigns.
  • Growth of malware: The number of malware URLs tracked in CYREN's GlobalView™ Cloud Database increased by 131% during 2013.
  • Spam levels continued to decrease. At the same time the total number of spam messages sent each day is still significant at 78 billion emails. CYREN also noted more targeted and localized attacks, as well as increased use of topical news stories to increase click-through rates.

"CYREN's security team is pleased to announce its first annual CYREN Security Yearbook, as it harnesses the power of our GlobalView™ Cloud technology to map out the global trends in Internet security over the last twelve months," said Lior Kohavi, chief technology officer at CYREN. "Last year was a challenging year for Internet security, featuring high-profile breaches and ever-changing cyber crime tactics. And 2014 brings with it an added emphasis on mobile malware, with the bad guys continuing to target under-protected mobile devices. They're also employing increasingly clever and localized campaigns to trap their next victims."
