1-15 June 2015 Cyber Attacks Timeline

I know you were losing all your hopes… Don’t panic! Even if with a little delay, here we go with the 1-15 June Cyber Attacks timeline.

This first half of June has been quite troubled from an infosec standpoint, with a couple of events that overshadowed all the rest and that will be probably remembered for a long time (and who can tell how long the consequences will last), I am obviously talking about the breach(es) suffered by the Office Of Personnel Management and the cyber attack executed against Kaspersky using a revamped version of Duqu dubbed Duqu 2.0.

Other interesting events of the month include the breach suffered by Lastpass, the return of the Syrian Electronic Army, who have defaced the official website of the US Army, and even a targeted attack against the Japan’s Petroleum Association for which few information is available.

As usual, keep the level of attention high, and if you want to have an idea of how fragile our electronic identity is inside the cyberspace, have a look at the timelines of the main Cyber Attacks in 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014 and now 2015 (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).
