The report supplements the global Kaspersky Security Bulletin and supplements global statistics and
threats overview with local data for specific country. Both reports are based on data obtained and
processed using the Kaspersky Security Network (KSN).

KSN assists Kaspersky Lab’s experts to swiftly detect new malware in real time when no corresponding signature or heuristic detection exists. KSN helps to identify sources of malware proliferation on the Internet and blocks user access to them.
