One-Third of All Malware Goes Undetected by AV
« on: March 31, 2017, 08:47:13 AM »
In the fourth quarter of 2016, about 30% of all malware was classified in new research as “zero day,” and was not caught by legacy antivirus solutions.

WatchGuard Technologies’ inaugural Quarterly Internet Security Report postulates that the finding indicates that cybercriminals’ capability to automatically repack or morph their malware has outpaced the AV industry’s ability to keep up with new signatures.
