After the corresponding cyber attacks timelines (part I and part II), it’s time to publish the statistics of June 2022 where I have collected and analyzed 233 events, in line with the numbers of the other two months of this quarter.

Cyber Crime led the Motivations chart and its percentage continued to grow, hitting 75.1% from 70.4% of May. Campaigns motivated by Cyber Espionage also continued to play a very important role, despite their percentage showed a light decrease (12.4% vs 13.5%), it continues to be quite an important part of the total events. On the other hand, Hacktivism confirmed its fall (even if the values continue to be much higher compared to the months before the Russian invasion of Ukraine) slipping to 8.2% from 9.9%. Operations motivated by Cyber Warfare fell to 2.6% from 4.5% in May.)

The new wave of ransomware attacks pushed malware steadily on top of the  Attack Techniques chart with 35.6% from 29.1%. Attacks carried out exploiting vulnerabilities jumped at the second place among the known attack techniques with 14.2%, together with account takeovers that confirm a value close to May (15.2%.) Targeted attacks ranked at number five with 8.6% from 10.3%.

The Target Distribution chart is led, once again, by attacks against multiple targets with 27% from 25.1%, ahead of healthcare organizations with 12% from 13.5%, and governments with 11.6% from 12.6%.

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.
