During November 2021, I have collected 200 events (in the first and second timeline) that I am finally aggregating into statistics. A number very close to the 200 events that I collected during the previous month.

Cyber crime continues to lead the Motivations chart, but its percentage drops to 80% from 87.8%. There is a clear explanation of this number and it’s the growth of cyber espionage that jumps at 15% from  8.1%, The widespread exploitation of  vulnerabilities has pushed this sector back to the values of September.

This trend also reflects in theAttack Techniques chart, with malware that drops to 35.5% from 49.2%, once again, among the known techniques, ahead of account takeovers with 17% (from 13.7%), Targeted attacks account for 9% (from 5.1%) and vulnerabilities for 7% (from 5.6%). It really looks like the values are very similar to September.

Last but not least, multiple targets lead the Target Distribution with 25.5% (it was 26.9% in October), ahead of healthcare with 13.5% (vs. 11.2% in October) and individuals (11.5% vs. 13.2%).

Check out the interactive charts and the statistics, 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.
