NTT DATA Corporation (hereinafter referred to as “NTT DATA”) released the global security quarterly report from July through September 2017, with the purpose of reducing potential threats and impacts globally.


NTT DATA consistently watches out for security-related circumstances with the purpose of reducing potential threats and impacts globally. NTTDATA-CERT, our dedicated team to security incident response, takes a deeper look at and analyzes publicly available information from various sources such as press releases of organizations, official websites of international and domestic institutions, newspapers and magazines, and quarterly publish an intelligence report so as to catch up the shift of global/domestic situations. Today, we release the report to wrap up the last quarter, namely July through September 2017 (FY2017 Q2), as well as to provide a forecast for the near future.

Executive Summary

In FY2017 Q2, we witnessed that banking Trojans gained additional functions and expanding target scope. These banking Trojans increase direct damage of stolen information as well as make incident response cumbersome and complicated; the cost of incident response grows considerable as well as damage and opportunity loss cannot be neglected. New banking Trojans also got to aim at cryptocurrency. NTTDATA-CERT anticipates that banking Trojans will go for reward points of loyalty programs as a new target.
