GFI Software, a leading IT solutions provider for small and medium-sized enterprises, today announced the top 10 most prevalent malware threats for the month of September 2010. The report, compiled from monthly scans performed by GFI's award-winning anti-malware solution, VIPRE® Antivirus, and its antispyware tool, CounterSpy®, is a service of GFI Labs™.
GFI VIPRE ThreatNet™ statistics for the month of September show a staggeringly consistent attack primarily by the same Trojan horse programs that have persisted for several months. Several of the top threats were unchanged from the past two months. Trojans detected as Trojan.Win32.Generic!BT were still the chief detection, slightly down to 23.54 percent of total detections. This generic detection includes more than 120,000 traces of malicious applications and has been in the top spot for many months: in August, with 25.11 percent, in July with 29.08 percent and in June with 27.16 percent of the total detections.
