MOSCOW, January 30. /ITAR-TASS/. The Russian Federal Security Service (FSB) in 2012-2013 has detected about 25 million malicious software products per year, First Deputy Chief of FSB’s Centre for Protection of Information and Special Communication, Alexei Kuzmin, told a press conference on Thursday.

In fact, it is large-scale production of malicious software. The volumes of this market are a bit less than in drug traffic, he noted.

Kuzmin referred to the statistics of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, according to which up to 90% of the whole spam volume is circulated through zombie nets (botnets).

It poses real danger as an existing base for cyber terrorism, the official noted.
