Attackers Are Thinking About Phishing Differently, So Should You

Posted by Mehul Patel on Jul 9, 2019

Every day new phishing campaigns are making the news. One is posing as legitimate emails from the Department of Homeland Security, the next pretends to be an alert from your email server that it has received an encrypted message for you, prompting you to log into a fake OneDrive site. Malicious actors know phishing campaigns are getting easier to identify. As a result, they continue to create new and more creative ideas to trick people. In fact, the 2019 Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report stated that phishing was involved in one third of all cyber attacks across all industries. The reason that number is so high is because even though cyber defenses, in general, are also becoming stronger, phishing attacks prevail, affecting businesses small and large.

How Isolation Could Prevent the Next WannaCry

Posted by Mehul Patel on Jun 18, 2019

Last month, Microsoft issued 79 patches and among these patches was one for an old Windows XP operating system, which was officially abandoned by Microsoft 5 years ago. The last time Microsoft released an update like this was months before the WannaCry ransomware attacks of 2017 wreaked havoc. Even Microsoft warned of the similarities with Simon Pope, director of incident response for the Microsoft Security Response Center writing, “Any future malware that exploits this vulnerability could propagate from vulnerable computer to vulnerable computer in a similar way as the WannaCry malware spread across the globe in 2017. It is highly likely that malicious actors will write an exploit for this vulnerability and incorporate it into their malware.”
