After the cyber attacks timelines (part I and part II), it’s time to publish the statistics of November 2023 where I collected and analyzed 390 events, up from the 376 events of October.

As usual, Cyber Crime leads the Motivations with 78.7%, slightly up from 76.7% of October, but once again lower than 80% (for the fourth month in a row.) Operations driven by Cyber Espionage went slightly up to 9.7% from 8.3%, while Hacktivism dropped to 5.4% from 9.4%. Four events were characterized by Cyber Warfare with a percentage that doubled, for the second month to a row, to 2.1% from 1.1%.

The Attack Techniques chart is led by Malware with 42.1%, up from 34.2%, while attacks carried out through the exploitation vulnerabilities ranked at place number two, with 11.3%, slightly down from 15.2% of the previous month. The third place among the known techniques is taken by  Targeted Attacks with 7.2%, up from 6.1% and ahead of Account Takeovers out of the podium with a percentage (5.4%), halving the value of the previous month (11%.)

The Distribution of Targets is led again by Multiple Organizations sligthly down to 17.7% from 19.3%, ahead of Healthcare with 14.1% slightly up from 13.4% of the previous month.

Check out the interactive charts and the statistics, also available as an infographic. And as always, please support my work, sharing the content, and of course follow @paulsparrows on X (formerly Twitter,) or even connect on Linkedin, or Mastodon for the latest updates for the latest updates.

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.
