They focus on malware, exploits, and botnets with the data prepared in interesting ways, such as a timeline and organized in exploits per country. The year saw ZeroAccess, Zeus, SpyEye, mobile botnets, and many more. With different profits available for infections, many malicious people are out there trying to get control of devices out there in different ways.
