Kenyan firms were hit with 37.1m cyber-attacks between October and December 2019, according to a new report by the Communications Authority of Kenya. It marks a 47.3% rise of the crimes reported compared to 25.2m registered in the second quarter that started in July and ended in September. CapitalFM reports that the increase has been attributed to an increasingly high number of malware threats, web application attacks, system misconfiguration and online abuse detected by the companies during the review period.
