1-15 November 2018 Cyber Attacks Timeline

It’s time to publish the first timeline of November, covering the main cyber attacks occurred between November 1st, and November 15th. For this fortnight, I have collected 67 events: one of the highest numbers I remember.

So it looks like that crypto scammers are flooding Twitter, this period has seen 6 operations promoting fake cryptovalues giveaways, carried out either hijacking verified Twitter accounts, or via fake verified accounts (like Elon Musk).

Another important event, in terms of cybercrime, concerns the breach occurred to HSBC, which hit about 1% of its U.S. customers.

The advanced actors are always on the spot: White Company, TEMP.Periscope, and an old acquaintance like APT29 are some protagonists of the advanced operations discovered and reported in this timeline.

And finally… Remember remember the 5th of November… The Italian institutions will remember it for sure, since they have been targeted by Op #FifthOfNovember, a spree of attacks carried out by local hacktivists affiliated with the Anonymous collective.

There are so many interesting events to browse, and the timeline is at your disposal for a complete view of the threat landscape (and also share it!). The timelines of the main Cyber Attacks in 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017 and now 2018 are also available, and do not forget the Cyber Attack Statistics, and follow @paulsparrows on Twitter for the latest updates.
