Unfortunately the situation has changed. Malware has become a huge part of organized crime’s business. An entire – illegal – industry worldwide earns billions from cyber attacks every year. If a technology is that successful, the development for a niche platform is no longer financially significant. In addition, cross-platform frameworks make it easier to roll out malicious programs on different systems.

Of course, malware also causes enormous costs for the victims. According to Statista, in Germany alone, the financial damage caused by cyber attacks and malware in 2020 was almost 6 billion euros.
