Despite being the single largest cause of cyber breaches, file based malware remains largely misunderstood, and with up to one million new variants of malware produced daily it is a practical impossibility to truly understand.

Glasswall’s research is based on hundreds of thousands of individual malware files and documents, obtained from customers, partners and publicly available sources, and processed using our industry changing Core Engine.

The chart Figure 1 is the output of that process, displayed on a monthly basis, and shown with the percentage of File based Malware that contains no embedded objects. No Macros in the Office documents, no JavaScript in the PDF files, and no hidden or embedded files across all files types.

With Glasswall’s unique analysis, the characteristics of file based malware can be revealed for the first time, highlighting that unseen threats exist that continue to bypass existing security solutions, and the changing trends of the malicious actors that change their tactics to achieve success.

Glasswall’s Malware Analysis Research seeks to provide a new baseline for Cyber Security Professionals when addressing file based malware, informing them of the changing risks that allowing files and documents into their organisation brings, whilst providing new metrics to assist measuring risk.
