According to the Center for Internet Security (CIS), in September 2020, three malware returned to the Top 10: CoinMiner, CryptoWall, and Emotet. The Top 10 Malware variants composed 87% of Total Malware activity in September 2020, up from 78% in August 2020.

The increase, says CIS, is largely due to the recent Shlayer campaign ramping up, as the education year begins for universities and K-12 schools.
