These days Adobe's Flash plug-in is one of the more popular attack vendors but thankfully more and more developers are moving away from it. The Inquirer highlights the importance of ditching Flash as McAfee's Lab Threats Report May 2015 shows the number of recorded Flash malware instances rose to nearly 200,000 in Q1 2015, up from 47,000 in Q4 2014.
Elsewhere in the McAfee report, there was a 165 percent rise in CTB Locker (ransomware) attacks with 35 percent of victims in Europe.

Spam continues ever onward with six trillion messages sent in Q1. A total of 1,118 spam domains were discovered in the UK alone, beating Russia (1,104) and Japan (1,035).

Phishing domains hit 887 in the UK, compared with France (799) and the Netherlands (680). Overall, McAfee Labs observed 362 phishing attacks a minute, or six every second.
