EVENTS/DAY

The first timeline of June is out with a trend that, after slowing down for a few months, is now restarting to grow. In this timeline I have collected 109 events, a sharp increase compared to the 85 incidents reported in the second timeline of May.

Ransomware continues to dominate the threat landscape with values similar to the previous timelines. Even in this one it has characterized, directly or indirectly, 38 events out of 109, corresponding to 34.86%, very close to 34.12% in the second timeline of may. And bear in mind that, as I always point out, the real number could be even higher since too many organizations do not completely disclose the root cause of  unspecified outages or disruptions tracked as the outcome of a generic “cyber attack”.

More high-profile targets have joined the list of victims of mega breaches including some Italian healthcare organizations and a primary car manufacturer, as also, another trend that continued over the course of this month is the exploitation of vulnerabilities. New 0-days exploited in the wild were revealed and patched by Google and Microsoft.

Similarly to the previous months, state-sponsored actors continue to be busy, exploiting vulnerabilities, like the new PuzzleMaker group. Other campaigns involve well-known actors such as Kimsuky, Mustang Panda, APT28, and SharpPanda.
