WatchGuard Threat Lab reports a decrease in malware volume, a surge in encrypted malware, and actively exploited Office vulnerabilities. “While overall malware attacks in Q2 fell off from the all-time highs seen in previous quarters, over 81% of detections came via TLS encrypted connections, continuing a worrisome upward trend,” said Corey Nachreiner, Chief Security Officer at WatchGuard. “This could reflect threat actors shifting their tactics to rely on more elusive malware.”
