There’s no question about the impact malware can have on your system.
But a new report from security firm Kaspersky Lab has revealed how it could take a serious blow to a laptop’s security.
The report shows that even if a laptop is running Windows 10, it could still have been infected by a malicious file that’s waiting for a fix.
The malware, named “SMM,” is a type of malware that could compromise the security of any computer that uses Microsoft’s built-in antivirus software.
Kaspersky Labs found that SMM was spreading to a total of 1.4 million PCs worldwide.
The company also found that the malware was used to install itself on a total 1.1 million PCs in more than 1,400 countries.
Infections in the wild typically take about two days to spread.
But Kasperskys findings indicate that the virus may have been running on computers for up to two weeks.
The company also reported that the infection spread to more than 3 million PCs across more than 200 countries.
Kosovo reported an increase in SMM infections in January.
It also said that the number of infected computers had risen from 7,000 in December to more then 40,000.
Klaus Kasperski/APThe impact of the ransomware is clear, and it’s not just in the U.S. Kaspersks report also shows that SMMs were spreading across more countries.
In total, it found more than 300 SMM instances in the world in January, and the virus has infected more than 50 million PCs globally.
Kersky’s research has led to the detection of malware known as CryptoLocker, a variant of which was used in attacks in the past that affected several countries, including Russia.
In this case, it appears that the ransomware has spread to other countries.
A ransomware variant known as SMM that was first spotted in November was also linked to the attacks in Russia, according to a report by Kaspersy.
In November, it was discovered that CryptoLockers ransom demand letters could be used to access the files.
In December, researchers at Trend Micro also discovered the virus was spreading through email and social media accounts, and was able to track the infected machines in over 100 countries.
