Incident Statistics for August 2018

Tuesday, October 30, 2018 - 15:35

These statistics only relate to information collated by Janet CSIRT and do not provide an accurate sample of security activity across the research and education sectors. The figures are frequently more closely correlated to the activity of CSIRT and our detection of events rather than their actual rates of incidence.

For example: a successful investigation by researchers into a botnet will cause that month's malware figures to rise even though the malware may have been active in previous months.

Please note that this months malware statistics for August 2018 are under represented due to a data collection issue.
