Escalating Attacks

McAfee Labs has found new IT security threats that are flying under the radar.

The past year has marked the beginning of a significant shift toward new threats that are more difficult to detect, according to the McAfee Labs 2016 Threat Predictions study. Here are several types of attacks expected to increase over the next five years:

  • Below-the-OS attacks in BIOS and firmware
  • Fileless threats
  • Exploits of remote shell and remote control protocols
  • Encrypted infiltrations
  • Sandbox-evasion malware
