Email Servers and Satellites will become key cyber-attack targets in 2023


Kaspersky, a security firm having roots in Russia, has released a prediction filled report stating email servers and satellites becoming key cyber attack targets in the year 2023. The threat will come majorly from APTs and the forecast was made after tracking and analyzing over 900 APTs on a global note.

Strangely, the Eugene Kaspersky led the firm revealed something astonishing in its report. It stated that cyber crooks will use drones mounted with related tools to hack Wi-Fi routers and deliver malicious USB keys in areas where they are banned from use…. now that’s interesting and perhaps impossible to witness in practical…. isn’t it?

Energy Grids, Public Broadcasting, Underwater cables and fibre distribution will majorly be targeted in the coming year.

Email servers will also top the list of being attacked, as they will be exploited through zero-day vulnerabilities.

Other major security predictions made by Kaspersky include satellite hacks downing internet and communication and broadcasting systems, data hacks leading to information leaks and Advanced Persistent Threats shifting their focus from the regular CobaltStrike beacons to other alternatives such as Manjusaka, Ninja, Brute Ratel C4 and Sliver.

Russian war on Ukraine was also discussed in the report as analysts predict that the war game will intensify and kremlin might look to take up cyberwarfare and nuclear attacks, as it is on the verge of loosing all its potential in its physical war with nation led by Volodymyr Zelensky.
