Hier ein kurzer (ironischer) Blick auf die aktuelle Cyber-Bedrohungslage:
- Cyber-Angriffe auf "böse" Logistikunternehmen -- Kommt mein Packerl eh morgen rechtzeitig an?
- Cyber-Angriffe auf Autombilunternehmen -- Pfui, aber nicht meine Lieblingsautomarke.
- Cyber-Angriffe auf Spitäler -- Diese armen Menschen.
- Cyber-Angriffe auf Wein-Trinker und -Sammler -- HEY, DAS GEHT JETZT ABER GAR NICHT MEHR!
Experten beobachten immer mehr Cyber-Angriffe auf Wein-Sammler, Getränkehändler und Lieferanten, da sich das vor-pandemische Trinken in ein endemisches Zuhause-konsumieren entwickelt hat:
Amid the COVID outbreak, alcohol has proven itself a target for hackers — but it hasn’t been clear before that scammers were trying to exploit people who were staying home and imbibing more. Alcohol delivery service Drizly, for instance, suffered a breach in July, while ransomware hit liquor and wine maker Brown-Forman around the same time. Recorded Future observed a mild jump in wine domain registrations in March of 2020, from the usual 3,000 to 4,000 per month up to nearly 5,500. April saw a bigger leap, to almost 7,200, and the numbers took off in May to 12,400. They’ve stayed high ever since. Domains that Recorded Future labeled as malicious followed a similar pattern. Researchers found 278 domains in April of 2020, followed by 668 in May. They began leveling off by fall, however. “It appears that it took some time for cyber criminals to catch on to the idea of using wine in malicious activities,” the report says. “Tracking malicious wine-themed domains as a percentage of total wine domains registered shows that the peak as a percentage of total wine-themed domains was in June 2020 at 7%.”
