EVENTS/DAY

The first timeline of April is finally out! In this timeline I have collected 117 events, with an average rate of 7.7 events per day. A daily value in line with the previous month that seem to show  a decreasing trend compared to the average value of the latest 12 months.

Unsurprisingly, ransomware is still the top threat with nearly 32% of events (but as I always point out they could be many more since too many organizations still do not completely disclose the reason of some unspecified “outages”).

The aftermaths of the exploitation of the Accellion FTA 0-day, (carried out by the Clop and FIN11 gangs) continue to be present, despite the effect is progressively diminishing.

What are not diminishing are the mega breaches, with new victims joining the list.

What seems to also decrease the number of events motivated by cyber espionage. Despite threat actors continue to exploit vulnerabilities of remote access technologies, the list seems to be shorter compared with the numbers we have been used to in the previous timelines.
