Of course we cannot introduce the second timeline of November (first timeline here) without mentioning the cyber attack that hit Uber Technologies in 2016, leading to the compromising of 57 million records. This is without any doubt the main event of this fortnight, and the scar left by the consequences (of both the attack and the way the company tried to handle it) will be remembered for long.
Unfortunately Uber is in good company since the list of the primary victims in November also includes Imgur, even if in this case the number of accounts possibly compromised is “only” 1.7 million.
As usual, there are many more remarkable events (like the campaign carried on by the Lazarus Group using a malicious app in disguise of a Bible reader), so feel free to 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). You may also want to have a look at the Cyber Attack Statistics that are regularly published, and follow @paulsparrows on Twitter for the latest updates.
Additionally, feel free to submit remarkable incidents that in your opinion deserve to be included in the timelines (and charts). If useful, you can access the timeline in Google Sheet format.
