Cyberthreat News

The threat of cyber attacks is increasing, not only for governments and businesses, but also for individuals and their personal information. These attacks can come from state-sponsored cyber warfare units or hacktivist groups. Cyberthreat News is dedicated to providing up-to-date coverage of recent cyber-attacks and the best ways to stay protected.

Cyberthreats are becoming more sophisticated and more prevalent, and the new year promises to bring some interesting updates to the cybersecurity landscape. For instance, Google is working to shore up a zero-day vulnerability that is already being exploited by attackers. In addition, Cequence Security and AttackIQ have published reports on bots and new spending bills.

A recent cyber attack against a Singaporean red cross website resulted in the leaked personal data of over 4,000 blood donors. Another example of a recent attack is a hack at SingHealth, which compromised 1.5 million patient records. As a result, the government is investigating how to protect its citizens.

In August 2022, the Greek national gas distributor, DESFA, suffered a major cyber attack that affected part of the company’s IT infrastructure, causing data leaks. Moreover, cybercriminals have been known to demand ransom payments to prevent sensitive data from being released. Meanwhile, in the UK, the South Staffordshire Water Company has been attacked by cybercriminals. The cybercriminals threatened to compromise its water supply and have demanded payment to cover their tracks.
