After the corresponding cyber attacks timelines (part I and part II), it’s time to publish the statistics of July 2022 where I have collected and analyzed 278 events, definitely a sharp increase compared with the previous months.

Cyber Crime leads the Motivations chart and its percentage continued to grow, hitting 79.9% from 75.1% of June. Similarly the operations driven by Cyber Espionage continue to play an important role, and a percentage growing to 14.4% from 12.4% of June). Hacktivism confirms its decreasing trend (the operations carried out by the Anonymous against Russia do not seem to be so important any longer) falling to 4% from 8.2%, and similarly events motivated by Cyber Warfare are negligible with a tiny 1.4% from 2.6% in June.)

Malware is steadily on top of the  Attack Techniques chart with the same value of June (35.6%), ahead of  Account Takeovers with 19.4% (up from 15.2% of June), and Targeted Attacks (10.1%, a value similar to May, up from 8.2% of June) and attacks exploiting Vulnerabilities (5.8% vs. 14.2% in June.)

The Target Distribution chart is led, once again, by attacks against multiple targets with 20.9% down from 27% of June, ahead of Individuals (13.7%), and governments with 10.1%, a slight decrease from 11.6% of June.

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.
