Common Cyber

Security threats

Malware

Malware, short for malicious software, is an umbrella term for viruses or harmful programs specifically designed to disrupt, damage or gain unauthorized access to sensitive information from a computer system, mobile device or IoT device.

Stats
  • 71% of organizations experienced malware activity that spread from one employee to another
  • 51% of organizations experienced a ransomware attack that led to partial disruption of business operations
  • 3000+ malware infected websites were detected weekly between January and March 2020
Spyware

Malicious software designed to secretly observe activity on a device and send the observations to a third-party that can steal personal information, such as credentials or browsing habits, which can result in identity theft and fraud.

Spyware

A well-known attack method that directly targets a particular user and tracks his online activity. The cyber criminal receives information provided by the malicious software such as information displayed on the compromised device, online behavior or credentials that can be subsequently used to wreak emotional, psychological and material damage to both the user and his contacts.

Ransomware

Ransomware - is a type of malware that prevents or limits targeted users from accessing their device’s system, either by locking the system’s screen or by locking sensitive files and documents until the requested ransom is paid.

Ransomware

The ransom attack compromises individuals and organizations, as it can expand in a network without being detected and can endanger both user activity or an organization and its partners. Highly vicious because it utilizes an encryption method irreversible when countered through techniques such as brute force. Once the information has been compromised, its return to the rightful owner will only occur following the payment of the ransom. Cyber criminals utilize cryptocurrency when demanding ransom for the purpose of protecting their identities.

Phishing

Phishing is a cyber attack method utilized in order to ransack users' data such as login credentials, credit card information or even complete user identification information using misleading/deceptive emails and websites.

Stats
  • 96% of phishing attacks arrive by email
  • 1 in every 22 users was targeted by a phishing email in 2020
  • 667% increase in phishing attacks in only one month during COVID-19 pandemic
  • 32,5% emails used the keyword “PAYMENT” in their subject
  • 1 in every 8 employees shares information on a phishing site
  • 22% of all data breaches in 2020 involved phishing attacks
DNS tunneling

DNS tunneling - a difficult-to-detect attack that routes DNS requests to the cyber criminal's server, providing a covert command, control channel, and data exfiltration path. Cyber criminals use DNS tunneling to pass data packages through firewalls in order to use it for malicious purposes.

DNS tunneling

DNS tunneling is one of the most damaging DNS attacks. Most organizations have a firewall that acts as a filter between their sensitive internal networks and the threatening global Internet. By creating a “firewall bypassing tunnel” the cyber-criminal gains access and control of the internal network of an organization and thus, of individual electronic devices.

Man in the middle

Man in the middle - is a general term for when a cyber-criminal positions himself in a conversation between the transmitter of the information and the receiver in order to intercept or to impersonate one of the parties, making it appear as a normal exchange of information is underway.

Man in the middle

Man-in-the-middle (MitM) attacks come in two forms, one that involves physical proximity to the intended target, and another that involves malicious software, or malware. The unauthorized third party gains access to an unsecured Wi-Fi router generally found in public areas with free Wi-Fi hotspots, and even in some user’s homes. A successful man-in-the-middle attack does not stop at interception. The victim’s encrypted data must then be unencrypted, so that the cyber criminal can read and act upon it.

Common vulnerabilities

and cause for concern

Hardware vulnerabilities are represented by any exploitable flaws in a computer system that allows intrusion through remote or physical access to system hardware. Any means by which a chip containing an executable code can be inserted in a computer is inherently a hardware vulnerability. When a user installs a software, changes location of files or plugs in flash drives is exposed to potential hardware vulnerabilities. Securing physical access by locking any slots, cabinets and cases housing computer equipment protects the user against this type of vulnerabilities. Another type of hardware vulnerability is an unexpected flaw in operation that allows cyber attackers to gain control of a system by elevating privileges or executing code. These vulnerabilities are not generally exploited through random hacking attempts but more typically in targeted attacks of known high-value systems and organizations.

Failing to patch vulnerabilities leaves an organization’s IT infrastructure at risk. Remote code execution, also known as RCE, is a type of vulnerability that allows cyber attackers to remotely run arbitrary code on vulnerable workstations. Cyber attackers can perform actions to exploit software vulnerabilities. Remote code execution is the most common vulnerability found in software today, and it can lead to other potential attacks. When trying to gain unauthorized access to a system, an intruder usually first conducts a routine scan (or investigation) of the target, collects any “exposed” data and then exploits security policy weaknesses or vulnerabilities. Vulnerabilities and exposures are therefore both important points to check when securing a system against unauthorized access.

Operating systems face escalating security challenges as global connectivity is growing and the number of reported vulnerabilities and incidents is increasing. Such security challenges or vulnerabilities often have a very predictable outcome: data or identity theft. For most operating systems the focus is directed on other functionalities rather than the user’s complete protection, therefore, they allow installation of unsecured computer software with administrator granted permissions that can alter or compromise user’s personal information.

A network vulnerability is a weakness or flaw in software, hardware, or organizational processes, which when compromised by a threat or attack, can result in a security breach. All data security breaches and cyber attacks start when a cyber criminal succeeds in exploiting a vulnerability found in an organisation’s network infrastructure. As a consequence, that network’s poor security creates the opportunity to facilitate remote access, data alteration or even cyber attacker’s full ownership of the network.

The telecommunication industry builds, operates and manages the complex network infrastructure utilized for voice and data transmission. Telecom companies communicate and store large amounts of user or organization’s sensitive data, and, in consequence, they represent a top target for malicious actors. As a result of its interconnected nature, the telecommunication industry’s threats can be divided into two interrelated categories:

  • Threats targeting telecom companies directly (DDoS attacks, targeted attacks, network device’s vulnerabilities exploitation and human-related threats like insider access, social engineering and unauthorized third party access to data).
  • Threats targeting subscribers of telecom services, particularly users of cellular and Internet services.

Data transfer through unsecured devices, applications or technologies imply, for individual users or organizations, high risks of sharing sensitive information with unauthorized third parties or even providing unwanted access to a computer of significant importance that may be used by external cyber criminals as an initial access point into a company’s network.
