EVENTS/DAY

The second cyber attacks timeline of June is finally out (part I here), where I have collected 102 events, a number that shows a slight decrease compared to the 109 recorded in the previous one.

Unsurprisingly ransomware continues to characterize this unlucky 2021, almost one out of three events (30.04%, down from 34.86 of the previous timeline) has seen threat actors encrypting, and in some cases leaking, the victim’s data, fueling a trend that seems unstoppable. No need to repeat that 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 in the list of victims of mega breaches including a well known car manufacturer that left a cloud storage misconfigured (and criminals didn’t take too long to take advantage of that).

Similarly, the unlucky moment for Google Chrome continues with a new 0-day vulnerability (CCVE-2021-30554) exploited in the wild.

At least for once, not so much to mention on the cyber espionage front. Besides Nobelium (AKA APT29 or Cozy Bear) that continues to be quite active, this timeline shows additional campaigns from know well actors such as: Kimsuky, TA402 AKA Molerats, and Ferocious Kittens.
