    Literally all we are seeing lately in the lab are file-less malware, coin miners and exploits. It's huge right now.

    @Slyguy I suspect we'll see a lot more coin miners, file-less malware and exploitation in the wild within the next 1-2 years. I expect that in around 5 years time, that will be the "average"/"standard" for an infection. :/
