After the cyber attacks timelines (part I and part II), it’s time to publish the statistics of April 2023 where I have collected and analyzed 341 events, a number that, for the second time in a row, beats the record of the previous month.

Cyber Crime leads the Motivations chart, but its percentage drops below 80% with a value lower than the previous month (75.1% vs 82.6%). The operations driven by Cyber Espionage are up to 12.3% from 9.3%, while Hacktivism grows to 7.6% from 5.1%  and Cyber Warfare records 8 events bringing its percentage to 2.3% from 1.4%.

Malware is always on top of the Attack Techniques, with 35.5% up from 32.3%,  ahead of Vulnerabilities that are still affected by a tail of events deriving from the massive exploitation of Fortra CVE-2023-0669, and hence confirm number two with 12% slightly down from 16.5% of the previous month; and Account Takeovers, continuing their decreasing trend to 8.2% from 10.5%.

The Target Distribution chart is led, once again, by campaigns against Multiple Organizations that continue the decreasing trend to 19.6% from  21%, ahead of Individuals (10.9%) and Public Admins down to 8.8% from 12%.

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.
