It’s time to publish the first timeline of April, covering the main cyber attacks occurred in the first fortnight of this month. The COVID-19 emergency continues to characterize the threat landscape, and in this timeline I have collected 104 event included 8 that slipped from the previous one, and one third of them is somehow related to the pandemic.
And once again the gangs behind ransomware attacks did not show any mercy: even in this timeline we have some high-profile victims in the energy, finance, and healthcare sectors.
Apparently the COVID-19 pandemic is also overshadowing the cyber espionage campaign. This first half of April was unusually quiet, despite some well know threat actors made the headlines, such as DarkHotel, Energetic Bear, and the Syrian Electronic Army.
It’s all for the summary. Feel free to browse the timeline, and read the details about the main events (and the impact of the COVID-19 on the threat landscape). Also feel free to share the timeline to support my work and spread the risk awareness across the community.
