Quiz: Metal band or cyberthreat?

Quiz

We love cybersecurity and find it fascinating. Cybercriminals invent new ways to attack victims daily, and we counter them with tools to protect people. It’s a game of cat-and-mouse, but with much higher stakes.

Some of us also love metal music. Its energy helps us maintain the drive, the joy, and, sometimes, the anger that we need to fight those crooks. So it’s probably not a coincidence that some malware species or other cybersecurity-related things have names that could suit a metal band.

Can you distinguish a metal band from a cyber threat by its name? Even if you are a metal fan, hitting 10 out of 12 may be a challenge!
