Fortinet has just released its Quarterly Threat Landscape Report for Q1 of 2018, and the numbers are interesting. While some of the most common threat indicators actually dropped during the quarter, the data also shows that attackers may simply be refining their technologies and methodologies. Another interesting trend was the variety of attack vectors that were targeted. While Meltdown and Spectre dominated the headlines in Q1, and Microsoft continued to be the number one target for exploits, routers took the number two spot in total attack volume. Growing from a tiny risk just a few years ago, over one in five organizations now report mobile malware (up 7%, to 21%). At the same time, Web oriented technologies were also heavily hunted by cybercriminals. Another technology area under attack in Q1 was web Content Management Systems (CMS).
