In Asia Pacific, Kaspersky has detected 53 coronavirus-related malware in the Philippines, 93 in Bangladesh, 40 in China, 23 in Vietnam, 22 in India, and 20 in Malaysia.
The Philippines has been in the same spot since 2017 next to list-toppers Indonesia and Malaysia, respectively.
The most serious attack vectors in the Philippines — receiving a seriousness rating of 9 or 10 out of 10 — were phishing, malware, and ransomware.
Data from Kaspersky revealed that its users in the Philippines were attacked by cybercriminals through the popular attack method called drive-by download.
Four weeks on, the threat continues to evolve rapidly and has now extended its target geography to include Europe and the Middle East, adding a phishing option for iOS devices and PC crypto-mining capability.
