It’s time to publish the second timeline of February (first one here). Despite this month had only 28 business days, the number of recorded events continues to grow: I have collected 70 events (plus 4 that slipped from the previous period).
So Gnosticplayers is on a roll and he published a third dump containing an additional trove of 92 million accounts. I don’t know why but my sixth sense is telling me that it won’t stop here.
I was also surprised that no cryptocurrency had been targeted so far, and here we go… EOS suffered a $7.7 million worth loss after one of the maintainers of the blacklist failed to update it.
Ransomware also continues to be pretty devastating: Wolverine Solutions Group (WSG) discovered a ransomware infection on September 25 last year (and disclosed it only today) with more than 700 companies and 1.2 million patients are affected.
Advanced actors are still quite active: APT28, Lazarus Group, APT-C-36, Windshift and Bronze Union, are just some examples that you will find in this timeline.
And while Italy remains the last frontier of hacktivism I encourage you to read the entire timeline and share it, to raise awareness and spread the verb of security throughout the community. And obviously don’t forget to follow @paulsparrows on Twitter for the latest updates.
