"Kits increasing in size and complexity, says M86 Security"
Russia is dominating the market for automated malware creation kits that are sold online to phishers and data thieves.
A new report from M86 Security, entitled Web Exploits: There's an App for That (PDF), found that the majority of new malware creation kits, such as Adpack and Fragus, are being sold in Russia.
The company had seen a big increase in the size and complexity of such kits, and said that more than a dozen had launched in the past six months.
"People can launch attacks without even knowing a line of code, and the infrastructure now exists to pay the attacker per exploit achieved," said Bradley Anstis, vice president of technology strategy at M86 Security.
"With an attack kit there is literally 'an app for that' and it is driving the explosive growth in internet-borne threats such as spam and zero-day attacks with new kits popping up every day."
