~68% of malicious and ~62% of phishing threats were detected in full-path URLs vs base domain, subdomain, and IP — highlighting the critical need for organizations to develop the capability for full-path URL threat protection.
This year’s report examines the malicious and phishing URL data sets separately for better insights relative to each. In addition to the analyses of the individual data sets, it also includes key commonalities and key differentiators between both malicious and phishing threats, as well as ‘In the Wild’ special editorial content from zvelo’s threat researchers.
Some of the highlights included in this year’s Malicious Trends Report are:
- Top 15 Common Malicious Files and/or Extensions
- Top 15 Common Words Observed in Phishing URLs
- Key Commonalities and Distinctions Between Malicious and Phishing Trends
- Trends by TLD, HTTP vs HTTPS, IP Address URL vs Text URLs, and Many Other Cyber Threat Observations
zveloCTI’s Malicious Trends Report offers insights into Malicious Cyber Actor (MCA) activities around malicious and phishing threats by utilizing a select dataset from our content categorization URL database. The goal of this report is to shed light on current trends and inform defenders about potential threats they may face.
