1-15 July 2019 Cyber Attacks Timeline

Welcome to this new timeline covering the main cyber attacks occurred in the first fortnight of July, where I have collected a total of 64 events.

Once again a reach timeline unfortunately, and I really do not know where to start from… Maybe from ransomware, where the list of the victims continues to grow.

In fact ransomware is the real plague of this 2019: just the time to celebrate the shutdown of the GandCrab operations, and here we are with new attacks against US municipalities. In this fortnight it has happened to Georgia Court System, La Porte County, Gila County, Onondaga County Library, and also some school like Syracuse City School, Northwest Indian College. But the US Municipalities were not the only victims, even the Chilean Ministry of Agricolture had the same destiny.

Of course the list of the events related to Cyber Crime, is quite long as usual, but should I mention some events in particular, I would undoubtedly quote the attack against the Bitpoint cryptocurrency exchange, about 3.5 billion yen ($32 million) worth stolen in cryptocurrency, and the attack against MyDashWallet.org.

And obviously the campaign of the Silence group against Banks in India, Sri Lanka, and Kyrgyzstan. There are also some interesting events in terms of Cyber Espionage (APT32, APT33 and Turla), but I would say at this point that the summary ends here, so you have no choice than to browse the timeline. Of course, feel free to share it and spread the verb of security awareness throughout the community.

Most importantly, do not forget to follow @paulsparrows on Twitter for the latest updates.
