That’s according to a report published Thursday by G Data, the German cybersecurity company that regularly tracks cybercrime. This report, the first of two scheduled on malicious software activity in 2015, determined that 26.6 percent of all malware attacks were aimed at health sites. Compare that to 10.2 percent in the second half of 2014 and 6.5 percent in the first half of 2014.
