The second cyber attacks timeline of November 2021 is finally out (you can find the first one here or in the link below.) In the second half of this month I have collected 96 events, with a daily average slightly decreasing to 6.4 events/day from 6,9 events/day. Ransomware continues to dominate the threat landscape with a percentage of events directly or indirectly characterized similar to the previous timeline (22%)

Even the impact of vulnerabilities is similar to the previous timeline (10.4% vs 12%), and once again threat actors continue to exploit the ProxyShell and Zoho’s ManageEngine ADSelfService Plus vulnerabilities.

The season of the mega breaches continue and multiple organizations suffered multi-million breaches (browse the timeline for details.) The good news is that, at least in this timeline, I did not record any mega hack of a fintech platform (but I have the feeling that this will change in the next timeline).

Threat actors motivated by cyber espionage were quite active in November characterizing a record of 22% of events in this timeline. The list is really too crowded this timeline so I encourage you to browse it and discover the old acquaintances and the new comers that characterized this period.

Enjoy the interactive timeline, and thanks for sharing it, and supporting my work in spreading the risk awareness across the community. Also, don’t forget to follow @paulsparrows on Twitter, or even connect on Linkedin, for the latest updates.



The “Breachometer” compares the current number of events/day with the max and min values recorded in the previous 12 months.
