1-15 February 2019 Cyber Attacks Timeline

The first timeline of February is finally here… Bringing us a trove of megabreaches and millions of accounts leaked and published in the dark web.

All this thanks (??) to a malicious actor with the moniker of Gnosticplayers has (or have) put on sale on the dark web a couple of leaks of respectively 617 and 126 million records stolen from dozens of websites (spoiler alert: the leak does not end here…) including: MyFitnessPal, MyHeritage, ShareThis, Houzz, Ixigo, etc.

The crypto landscape continues to be quite troubled with two novelties this fortnight: the first example of a clipboard hijacker found in the Google Play Store in disguise of MetaMask, a legitimate app, and also the first example of miners found in the Microsoft Store (this is really democracy!).

Other interesting events include another breach to Dunkin’ Donuts, the compromise of North Country Business Products, a PoS solution provider (leading to the exposure of payment information for clients at 137 restaurants).

But at this point I bet you are more interested in browsing the timeline rather than reading my comments, so feel free to read it all, share it, and spread the verb of security awareness throughout the community. And obviously and don’t forget to follow @paulsparrows on Twitter for the latest updates.
