1 in 4 Indians Faced Cyber Threats by March 2024: A report released on Friday found that almost one in four Indians suffered hacking attacks in the first quarter of the year.

According to Kaspersky’s quarterly report, 22.9% of web users in the country are vulnerable to web-borne threats, while 20.1% are vulnerable to local threats.

“Malware remains a major threat to the users in India. Targeted malware attacks continue to be a major source of worry for organisations and users alike,” said the company.

Due to this, cyber criminals exploited vulnerabilities in browsers and their plugins. “File-less malware seems to be the most dangerous web threat this quarter since it leaves no trace.”.

Users in India were also targeted by social engineering attacks such as phishing, baiting, and pretexting.

During the January-March period, Kaspersky’s web security solutions detected and blocked 16,751,049 local incidents on computers.
