Hacking, AppSec, and Bug Bounty newsletter
2019-05-08 | Verizon’s 2019 DBIR report, ChatOps Fail, and How to analyze firmware
Wednesday, May 8
Verizon’s latest 2019 data breach report is out. See the full summary of findings top read more. I liked Tim Stark’s quick review in today’s Politico, the heading aptly titled “Into the Breaches”: “Criminals (Tim says “hackers”, I modified as appropriate) are increasingly targeting corporate executives; cryptomining isn’t as common as news reports suggest; social-based attacks are declining, possibly because more-direct business email compromise attacks are rising; and the health care sector is the only industry where insider attacks are more common than outsiders. Some things remained the same: Financial motives are still No. 1 and espionage No. 2, and ransomware is going strong."
