Kaspersky Security Update

Countries where users face the highest risk of local infection

Country                % unique users*
1Vietnam                 58.42%
2Mongolia                55.02%
3Algeria                   52.05%
4Yemen                   51.65%
5Bangladesh            51.12%

These statistics are based on the detection verdicts returned by the antivirus module, received from users of Kaspersky Lab products who have consented to provide their statistical data. The data includes detections of malicious programs located on users' computers or on removable media connected to the computers, such as flash drives, camera and phone memory cards, or external hard drives.
The Top 20 in this category continues to be dominated by countries in Africa, the Middle East, and South East Asia. Vietnam ranks first, as was the case in Q1 2014, while Mongolia remains in second. Nepal fell to seventh place. Saudi Arabia, Ethiopia, and Turkey are new entries in this ranking. Morocco, Myanmar and Sudan dropped out of the top 20.
An average of 32.8% of computers was subjected to at least one local threat during the past year.
