The Cisco 2017 Midyear Cybersecurity Report (MCR) uncovers the rapid evolution of threats and the increasing magnitude of attacks, and forecasts potential Destruction of Service attacks, which could eliminate organizations’ backups and safety nets. Also, with the advent of the Internet of Things, key industries are bringing more operations online, increasing attack surfaces and the potential scale and impact of these threats.
Cisco security researchers watched the evolution of malware during the first half of 2017 and identified shifts in how adversaries are tailoring their delivery, obfuscation and evasion techniques. Specifically, Cisco saw they increasingly require victims to activate threats by clicking on links or opening files.
