Number of fake antivirus attacks has decreased considerably

The frequency of attacks that distribute fake antivirus software, a long-time pillar of the underground economy, has decreased considerably in recent months. However, security researchers warn that the industry is not yet dead and new versions of attacks continue to be released.

According to a new report from antivirus vendor Kaspersky Lab, the rate of fake antivirus attacks in June was somewhere between 50,000 and 60,000 per day, but their frequency has dropped to under 10,000 a day.
