Nastiest Malware 2022Nastiest Malware
With 2023 around the corner, we’ve seen yet another eventful year for the threat landscape and malware continues to be center stage in the threats posed towards individuals, businesses, and governments. The infosec industry continues the struggle of the perpetual cat and mouse game tactics that haven’t really stopped since cybercriminals first started decades ago. This absolutely accelerated into overdrive the past 9 years with the mainstream adoption of ransomware payloads and cryptocurrency facilitating payments.If you’ve seen our writeup of Blackhat 2022, the keynote speakers noted that in 25 years of doing hacking conferences, we still don’t have a handle on what’s going on, and the surface area of attack is only growing so we all expect it to get worse.The ransomware double extortion tactic continues to be a match made in heaven for criminals and absolute hell for victims. Every major ransomware campaign has been utilizing a Tor leak site for data exfiltrated with the intention of

These updates highlight the most recent trends in malware and phishing within the first six months of 2022.If you haven’t already, check out our 2022 BrightCloud Threat Report The Manufacturing vertical continues to experience the highest above-average infection rate, rising just over 12% since 2021 to 66.5%. The Information and Public Administration verticals also saw spikes in above-average infection rates, 47.4% and 42.7%, respectively. Windows 11 adoption remains stagnant, only rising 4% for businesses and 15% for consumers within the first nine months of the release.

Week 3 Winners Announced! (UPDATED)Contest Winners

Both of these members had over 1k points on FridayI have been talking with Insided (platform we use) support team this morning and they did indeed have leaderboard issues and we are not alone. “Very sorry for the trouble here….We've received reports about the leaderboard this morning, and we're looking into them….I've also enquired with our engineering team about the timezone inconsistency, as you have Eastern Time set up in your configuration, so the reset should occur for all users at the same time.” Good thing I centered the contest around the leaderboard...The three users I found who had their points reset prematurely were @kleinmat4103 @russell.harris and @MunkeyMan After painstakingly going through users activity to try and calculate a new standings I have a new list. It is not perfect as I don’t hav
