Global Kaspersky research unveils that 30% of healthcare providers have experienced cases where their employees compromised customers’ personal information during remote consultations. In addition to this, almost half of providers believe that their clinicians don’t clearly understand how patients’ data is protected. However, 67% of them believe it is important for the healthcare sector to collect even more personal information to further industry development.
Kaspersky EDR has achieved the highest AAA award in SE Labs’ Enterprise Advanced Security test (previously known as Breach Response Test). The solution was noted for its ability to detect complex targeted attacks, track malicious behavior from the beginning to the end of an attack and generate no false positive results. During the evaluation, the product was exposed to the tools, techniques, and procedures used by advanced threat groups.
From January 20 to November 10, 2021, Kaspersky experts uncovered a new piece of malware that has targeted more than 35,000 computers across 195 countries.

Kaspersky has uncovered a previously unknown IIS module (a piece of software aimed at providing additional features to Microsoft web servers) they have since dubbed Owowa that steals credentials entered by a user when logging into Outlook Web Access (OWA); it also allows the attackers to gain remote control access to the underlying server. Compiled sometime between late 2020 and April 2021, this module is a stealthy theft method that is difficult to detect with network monitoring. It’s also resistant to software updates from Exchange, meaning it can stay hidden on a device for a long time.
In 2021, Kaspersky’s detection systems discovered 380,000 malicious files per day, indicating a 5.7% increase compared to 2020. This growth correlates with the continuous rise in the number of devices used worldwide, among other factors.
