EVENTS/DAY

The second timeline of April is finally out! In this timeline I have collected 123 events, with an average rate of 8 events per day. A daily value slightly higher than the previous timeline (7.7 events per day). The average values are still pretty high, despite the peek of February seem to be flattening.

Similarly to the previous one, 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”).

Another trend that is characterizing this period is the growing impact of vulnerabilities for attacks motivated by both cyber crime and cyber espionage. Even in this fortnight the list of exploited technologies, whether they are on-prem hardware appliances or software platforms is pretty long.

And the growing impact of vulnerabilities is fueling the impact of cyber espionage accordingly: the Lazarus Group, APT29, Tick, Ghostwriter, Naikon, UNC2630, UNC2717, and UNC2682 are few examples of the threat actors that made the headlines in this timeline.
