Which Threats had the Most Impact During the First Half of 2018? –

Hi all, Which Threats had the Most Impact During the First Half of 2018? This is the big question, and there are some big names including the two biggest from this year that may still be becoming a problem, although when discussed at the beginning of the year, the threat was just a concept. We’ve got plenty of gifts that just give, don’t we?

In the ransomware section, I can’t help but quote this section, because we’ve discussed that it is on the decline, but in all actuality, it is just recycling what works, just nothing new.


“Ransomware: No end in sight

For years, ransomware infections have been a formidable threat to organizations within every industry, and the first half of 2018 saw no change in this
trend. Researchers again identified an increase in ransomware infection activity – 3 percent. While this may seem small, the current rate at which ransomware
attacks take place make this rise significant.

At the same time, Trend Micro discovered a 26 percent decrease in new ransomware families. This means that while hackers are continuing to leverage this
attack style to extort money from victims, they are utilizing existing, standby ransomware samples, creating fewer opportunities for zero-day ransomware
threats.”


One of the other big things is megabreaches. This is defined as a breach that is outreached to a million or more effected. We’ve had plenty of these.

Thoughts? Please feel free to contribute.
