Yesterday I have published the Cyber Attacks Timelines of June (part I and part II), so now I can finally publish the statistics. In June I have collected 211 significant events, an increase compared to the 211 of May.

Unsurprisingly, cyber crime leads the Motivations chart with 85.8% (a slightly lower than May when it was 88.7%.) Similarly, malware continues to lead the Attack Techniques chart, but its value drops to 40.8% from 48.6% in May). I won’t stress enough the concept that the real value could be even higher since some malware-based attacks are filed as “Unknown” as the victims do not disclose enough information.)

And one again multiple industries keep the leadership of the Target Distribution chart with 17.8%, two points higher than May, when it was 15.8%, and for the second month in a row, ahead of public administrations.

The statistics are also available as an infographic.

As always bear in mind that the sample refers exclusively to the attacks included in my timelines, available from public sources such as blogs and news sites. Obviously the sample cannot be complete, but only aims to provide an high level overview of the threat landscape.

Finally, please support my work, sharing the content, and of course follow @paulsparrows on Twitter for the latest updates.
