So they do know about Bitcoin, but they still do not want to accept it as a payment method for their products. I have been sending them emails for months to try and get them to be the first AV software company to accept Bitcoin as a payment method.

It's just natural for the hackers to target mobiles, because most people do not care to install AV software for their phones. I did a quick spot check, and only one of my friends have AV software installed on his phone. I asked 32 people. It's a huge opportunity for them, and most people use their mobiles, linked to many of their accounts.

I find it interesting that it registers on the pie chart as 15% combining the malware and mining software.
While keyloggers are only 2%
That said price and mining centralizing a bit likely account for the overall decrease in malware attacks.

﹝crypto.com﹞  THE NEW STANDARD. ﹝Wallet﹞ ﹝Easiest way to buy or sell crypto﹞ ﹝Metal VISA credit card with cashback﹞  And best of all,
8% yearly interest on your crypto holdings. Make 1 BTC into 1.08 BTC completely risk-free. Register & download app
