Rogue security applications dominated cyberspace in September, making up 61.5 per cent of the month’s total activity according to Fortinet’s top ten most reported high-risk threats.

“When we see unprecedented volume, as in the case of these rogue security applications, it usually indicates that the attacks are working and cybercriminals are trying to act fast to take full advantage of the situation,” said Derek Manky, security researcher for Fortinet. “It also shows the depth of resources available to this criminal organisation.”
