Oz No.1 For Phishing Attacks

Australia has recently almost doubled its share of global phishing attacks, making it the world’s most targeted country, Kaspersky claims.

Its analysis of August figures is said to show that the number of anti-phishing component activations on computers of Australian users accounted for nearly a quarter of the world’s total phishing attacks, at 24.4 per cent.

Australia’s latest ranking has pushed Brazil (19.5 per cent) down to second position.

The UK (15.2 per cent) and Canada (14.6 per cent) came third and fourth respectively. August saw phishing activity increase by 62 per cent with 32 million detections globally.
