1-15 October 2019 Cyber Attacks Timeline

And here we go with the first timeline of October. In this fortnight I have collected 87 events, that is quite an important number. However what is strange, is that this timeline also collects six events occurred in September plus one (the Egyptian campaign uncovered by Amnesty International) in March (I know it’s my fault I completely missed it.

Curiously, this timeline contains two campaigns targeting the aviation industry: Turbine Panda, a massive operation against contractors allegedly aimed fill the technological gap of China in this sector, and Avivore, an additional campaign against European industries in the same sector. This are just the classical tip of the iceberg since there are multiple cyber espionage campaign in this timeline, with some old acquaintances such as Turla and APT35 AKA Charming Kitten and other actors like APT17, PKPLUG and Attor.

Ransomware continues to devastate hospitals local governments, end educational institutions. Only in Alabama and Australia ten hospitals have been hit and some of them forced to turn patients away. Other noticeable victims include Pilz, Pitney Bowes, TrialWorks, the city of Jerez de la Frontera in Spain and the Groupe M6 in France.

For the complete list, feel free to browse the entire timeline, and share it to support my work and spread the concept of risk awareness across the community. Of course feel free to contribute, suggesting noticeable cyber events, and do not forget to follow @paulsparrows on Twitter, or even connect on Linkedin, for the latest updates.
