Cyber attacks a threat to internet efficiency | Ciberseguridad + Inteligencia | Scoop.it

On 4 November, Neelie Kroes Commissioner responsible for the Digital Agenda stressed the threat of cyber-security hacking for the efficiency of Internet Services. “Incidents (also linked to human mistakes) and attacks are clearly on the rise…the number of web based attacks went up 36% in the year 2011.”

 

During his speech in the Information Security Forum Conference in Chicago, Kroes urged for bringing cyber security in the top of the political agenda. Acknowledging that most of the cyber networks and infrastructures are privately owned, the Commissioner recognised the limited role of the public authorities.

Learning basics of Cyber-Security: What kind of Cyber-Attacks? Analysis of 15 million cyber attacks | Ciberseguridad + Inteligencia | Scoop.it

Learning basics of Cyber-Security: What kind of Cyber-Attacks?

 

FireHost announced the findings of its latest web application attack report, which provides statistical analysis of the 15 million cyber attacks blocked by its servers in the US and Europe during Q3 2012. The report looks at attacks on the web applications, databases and websites of FireHost’s customers between July and September, and offers an impression of the current internet security climate as a whole.

 

XSS is now the most common attack type in the Superfecta, with CSRF now in second. FireHost’s servers blocked more than one million XSS attacks during this period alone, a figure which rose 69 percent, from 603,016 separate attacks in Q2 to 1,018,817 in Q3. CSRF attacks reached second place on the Superfecta at 843,517.

Melf's curator insight, April 18, 2014 9:13 AM

Here you see some facts about how companies lack in security.

Some points like file sharing and getting worms are a really big issue. If there is no protection against that the company may be in danger. If all people have about 3 devices and they arent protected, you cant stop this.

Melf's curator insight, April 25, 2014 9:02 AM

I think that people should pay more attention to this because there are more victims every day. Not only persons but also companies could get trouble with not paying attention to your data.

Melf's curator insight, April 25, 2014 9:07 AM

Im very afraid of losing data myself. I saw a commercial once that someone took over the identity of another person. I hope that people pay more attention and try to be more safe in the future.
