Welcome to the McAfee Labs Threats Report: Fourth Quarter 2013. As we kick off the New Year, we take a fresh approach to our Threats Reports. Beginning with this edition, we present a shorter publication, with “Key Topics” covering top threats or security issues from the quarter. We also focus (on a rotating basis) on threat concerns surrounding the four IT megatrends: mobile, social, cloud, and big data. The report is now visually richer and easier to navigate.
McAfee Labs is the world’s leading source for threat research, threat intelligence and cybersecurity thought leadership. With data from millions of sensors across key threats vectors—file, web, message, and network—McAfee Labs delivers real-time threat intelligence, critical analysis, and expert thinking to improve protection and reduce risks.
