No environment is immune to cyber attacks : Research

Global cyber-security solutions provider Check Point Software Technologies Ltd, released its “Cyber Attack Trends: 2019 Mid-Year Report”, revealing that no environment is immune to cyber-attacks.

Threat actors continue to develop new tool sets and techniques, targeting corporate assets stored on cloud infrastructure, individuals’ mobile devices, trusted third-party supplier applications and even popular mail platforms:

Mobile banking: With over 50% increase in attacks when compared to 2018, banking malware has evolved to become a very common mobile threat. Today, banking malware is capable of stealing payment data, credentials and funds from victims’ bank accounts, and new versions of these malware are ready for massive distribution by anyone that’s willing to pay.

Software supply chain attacks: Threat actors are extending their attack vectors such as focusing on the supply chain. In software supply chain attacks, the threat actor typically instils a malicious code into legitimate software, by modifying and infecting one of the building blocks the software relies upon.

Email: Email scammers have started to employ various evasion techniques designed to bypass security solutions and anti-spam filters such as encoded emails, images of the message embedded in the email body, as well as complex underlying code which mixes plain text letters with HTML characters. Additional methods allowing scammers to remain under the radar of Anti-Spam filters and reaching targets’ inbox include social engineering techniques, as well as varying and personalizing email content.

Cloud: The growing popularity of public cloud environments has led to an increase in cyber-attacks targeting enormous resources and sensitive data residing within these platforms. The lack of security practices such as misconfiguration and poor management of the cloud resources, remains the most prominent threat to the cloud ecosystem in 2019, subjecting cloud assets to a wide array of attacks.

“Be it cloud, mobile or email, no environment is immune to cyber attacks. In addition, threats such as targeted Ransomware attacks, DNS attacks and Cryptominers will continue to be relevant in 2019, and security experts need to stay attuned to the latest threats and attack methods to provide their organizations with the best level of protection,” said Maya Horowitz, Director, Threat Intelligence & Research, Products at Check Point.

North Korean hackers, now have power to kill

Prof Kim Heung-Kwang, a defector from North Korea who escaped from the country in 2004, has revealed that North Korean hackers have enough control over infrastructure that they could theoretically even kill people.

The Professor revealed this piece of information to BBC and said that North Korea approximately had around 6,000 trained military grade hackers. He has urged international organizations to step in and defuse the threat North Korea's hackers are becoming.

Before defecting from North Korea, Prof Kim taught at the Hamheung Computer Technology University for 20 years in the field of computer science.

Bureau 121, North Korea's hacking unit, has been widely accused of being responsible for recent hacks like the Sony Pictures one that occurred last year.

Many of the attacks of North Korea seem to be focused on their immediate neighbor, South Korea.
