In recent years, the popularity of open source frameworks and publicly released proof of concept techniques have contributed to the rise of cyber attacks. For example, Magento, a popular cloud-based e-commerce platform with an open-source ecosystem recently had almost a 1,000 compromised CMS admin panels.
Whether you’re a multinational corporation, a startup, or a small business, no one in the digital age is safe from a cyber attack. This makes it important for everyone to practice extreme vigilance against (sophisticated) spoofing attacks.
In the age of data breaches and ransomware attacks, enterprises must take steps to actively respond to rapidly evolving cybersecurity threats. However, this is not something that’s going to be easy to achieve.
Software today is often riddled with security flaws and vulnerabilities that bad actors can leverage to gain access to IT systems. In fact, according to a study (based on 268 penetration tests) conducted by security firm Rapid 7, only 16% of the software companies investigated were in the clear.
To say that cybercrime is on the rise is really an understatement. Today, cyber attacks are frequent and increasingly sophisticated targeting not only customer credit card details but also highly confidential internal communications and corporate documents.
