2014 Emsisoft Malwarelympics

Emsisoft’s Malwarelympics infographic decorates winners that don’t necessarily want to be on the podium. This year the United States takes gold  from reigning champion Russia, for the most infected country in the world. In second, Russia takes silver; and in third, Iran takes bronze, just beating out Germany by a few thousand samples.

Aside from the country winners, some other impressive malware Olympians are highlighted. Research indicates that Trojan horses were the year’s largest malware family yet again, with a 10.3% worldwide infection rate. Worms took silver with 4.7%, and exploits rounded out the list at 3.9%, earning the family bronze.

This year, viruses were outsiders yet again, with only a 2.1%  infection rate worldwide.
