1-15 June 2014 Cyber Attacks Timeline

It just looks like attackers are enjoying the beginning of the Summer, since the first half of June confirms the decreasing trends.

The controversial 2014 World Cup has revived the hacktivists, and in particular the Anonymous collective who kicked off the Operation OpWorldCup, targeting Brazilian Governmental institutions and Sponsors of the World Cup.

Looking at the Cyber Crime, the most remarkable event of the month is the extortion attempt against  Belgian and French customers of Domino’s Pizza (650,000 users affected). It is also worth to mention the wave of DDoS attacks against Feedly and Evernote, in the first case motivated by extortion, and also the compromising of a US Army database in South Korea.

Last but not least, chronicle report the details of two Cyber Espionage Operations: Operation Molerat, originating allegedly from Middle East, and yet another one from China, discovered by Crowdstrike and attributed to a group dubbed Putter Panda.

As usual, if you want to have an idea of how fragile our data are inside the cyberspace, have a look at the timelines of the main Cyber Attacks in 2011, 2012 and now 2013 (regularly updated). You may also want to have a look at the Cyber Attack Statistics, and follow @paulsparrows on Twitter for the latest updates.

Also, feel free to submit remarkable incidents that in your opinion deserve to be included in the timelines (and charts).
