Cyber Attack news headlines trending on Google


Microsoft released a report that cloud applications are acting as catalysts for cyber attacks as it detected over 1.5 million attack attempts on cloud environments in a time frame of just 60 months.

Second is the news related to NATO. From the past couple of days, some blueprints belonging to a missile system developer are doing rounds on the internet and hackers who released the data claim the blueprints belong to a European Missile Maker named MBDA Missile Systems and the information of about 80GB is up for sale for a meagre 15 Bitcoins.

Currently, the incident is under investigation and so MBDA is yet to react to the news that hackers had accessed to the company classified data. The Italian company based in France has admitted that a compromised hard drive might have leaked the details to hackers. But failed to divulge more details, as the probe is still on.
