Angler Hangs Up Its Pole
Back in April, more than 80% of drive by download attacks were attributed to Angler. Now? Nearly zero. Speculation abounds regarding its disappearance earlier this month.

In this case, Angler may be off the table for good. Unfortunately, Angler’s apparent demise didn’t slow down cyber criminals for long; they simply switched to Neutrino.
