Read All About It: The Breaches That Won’t Make the Headlines
The State of Security
It’s been a busy few months for those tracking cybersecurity breaches. Considering that this quarter alone has seen headlines for British Airways identifying additional victims behind its already significant breach, Facebook’s massive messaging leak and Yahoo’s significant payout related to earlier data breaches, there are plenty of high profile cases that reinforce the importance of good cybersecurity when operating on the web.
But these are just the tip of the iceberg that security researchers have started to identify. As an example, there’s a great piece of research relating to Docker API’s being exploited to run crypto-mining operations. I find this particular breach interesting because it’s a great demonstration of the “perfect storm” of technologies that make future attacks more likely.
