According to Microsoft, attacks on passwords per second increased by 74% in the last year alone and many of these fueled ransomware attacks, leading to ransom demands that more than doubled. We are seeing attacks that are much faster, more deliberate, and smarter,” said Abbas Kudrati, chief cyber security advisor of Microsoft Asia Pacific. Phishing attacks, a common entry point for most cyberattacks, have increased by over 300% worldwide, with over 710 million phishing emails blocked weekly in 2021 alone. Nation-state cyber threatsThe two cyberattacks are only amplified by nation-state threats — cyber threat activities that originate in a specific country with the apparent intent of furthering national interests. In recent years, nation-state threats have caused growing tension between countries, which further drives the importance of strengthening cybersecurity postures.
The convergence of advanced persistent threat attacks and other cybercrime methods may define the cybersecurity landscape next year, according to cybersecurity solutions provider Fortinet. Apart from the expected rise in CaaS, Fortinet shares some of its predictions in the cybersecurity landscape in 2023. Beyond the existing reality of threat actors combining a computer worm with wiper malware, and even ransomware for maximum impact, the concern going forward is the commoditization of wiper malware for cybercriminals. Given its broader availability combined with the right exploit, wiper malware could cause massive destruction in a short period of time given the organized nature of cybercrime today. Using AI-powered inline sandboxing is a good starting point to protect against sophisticated ransomware and wiper malware threats.1 month ago Back End News

With Paul Konchesky in charge, West Ham have started the WSL relatively well with now three wins. A right-wing cross from West Ham’s Mel Filis was headed home too easily by the very tall Icelandic striker and West Ham captain, Dagny Brynjarsdottir. They put the West Ham defence under pressure throughout, largely leaving Jacqueline Burns a spectator. There were groans from the West Ham fans when the assistant referee indicated six minutes of time to be added. Still no wins against West Ham United for just over two years.3 months ago The Tilehurst End

There was some pressure ahead of the mid-table clash against Bristol City. The bench offered some decent options, among others Nesta Guinness-Walker, Tyrese Fornah, Ovie Ejaria, Shane Long and Andy Carroll. Bristol City, who had been pretty harmless so far, tried to push forward while the home side set slightly deeper. In the 67th minute Paul Ince brought on Shane Long in place of Lucas Joao who worked hard but wasn’t really lucky up front. Only seconds later Tom Ince should have made it two.3 months ago The Tilehurst End
A Joao Pedro brace was enough for Watford to consign Reading to their sixth defeat in eight games, with the favourites coming away with a deserved victory. Ex-Liverpool man Ejaria could have no complaints on that one, with talisman Pedro picking himself up to put the Hornets ahead in the 15th minute. In fairness to them, they did have a decent spell but the Hornets fired back with Pedro having an attempt well saved by Dean Bouzanis in the 63rd minute. Following that and another missed opportunity for the Hornets to double their lead through Davis, it seemed clear that more changes were needed. The travelling fans did nearly have something to celebrate with just under a quarter of an hour left when Tom Ince fired Tyrese Fornah’s short free-kick just over Daniel Bachmann’s crossbar.2 months ago The Tilehurst End
