EVENTS/DAY

And finally I can publish the second timeline of June 2022 (part I here). In the second half of the month I collected 117 events, corresponding to an average of 7.8 events/day, once again in line with the sustained trend that is characterizing the latest months.

Even this second timeline of June confirms a decrease in the number of events related to Ukraine, and a relatively high number of events characterized by ransomware (27 out of 117, corresponding to 23%, slightly less than 26.8% of the previous timeline.) As always consider that the real percentage could be higher since some organizations, when suffering ransomware attacks, report generic outages or disruptions without citing explicitly the reason of the attack. Vulnerabilities characterized, directly or indirectly 16.2% of events, once again thanks primarily to ‘Follina’ (CVE-2022-30190). And even if this number is lower than 20.3% of the previous fortnight, it remains equally important.

Attacks against Decentralized Finance platforms continued also in this second fortnight. The most massive one hit Harmony ($100M worth of cryptocurrency allegedly stolen) and it was carried out by the North Korean APT Lazarus Group.

The cyber espionage front confirms the trend of the last months, with quite a sustained level of activity. Ukraine was, easily predictable, the target of several campaigns carried out by the likes of APT28 (AKA Fancy Bear), and UAC-0098 (a previously unidentified threat group). Other active groups (whose operations were not directly related to Ukraine, include: APT10, APT41, Evilnum, Tropic Trooper, and new actors such as the  ToddyCat.

After this short summary, you can enjoy the interactive timeline. 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.
