2. Crimeware

Second highest on the list of data breach causes is Crimeware, representing malware attacks that were not point-of-sale or cyberespionage, which accounted for 18.8 percent of confirmed breaches and 25.1 percent of total incidents. The vast majority of these attacks were C2, accounting for 84.4 percent, though a significant portion was also DOS, back-door and spyware/keylogger attacks.

To fight back against these breaches, the report recommended capturing and tracking malware incidents in an attempt to quantify the attacks.
