It’s time to publish the first timeline of this autumn, covering the main cyber attacks occurred between September 1st and 15th.
There have been two events characterizing this fortnight: the cyber attack targeting Equifax, and the discovery of DragonFly 2.0, a nation-sponsored operation compromising multiple US and European energy companies. Other noticeable events include the breach targeting Taringa, the South American version of Instagram, potentially compromising nearly 28 million users; and the one against Canoe.ca, a Canadian news portal targeting potentially one million users.
As usual scroll down the whole list for all the events happened in this fortnight. 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, 2015 and 2016 (regularly updated).
