“Are you cyber secure?”
An article about the latest features of cybersecurity and an interview with the managing director of aXite:
In recent years the scale and the robustness of cyber attacks have increased rapidly. An often used weapon are the DoS attacks, during which huge amounts of data are sent to servers, resulting in servers getting stuck. Hackers try to make companies that they are attacking pay ransomware payments in return for lifting their blockades. Lesser known are attacks relating to operation technology, motivated by confiscating IP or by sabotage. A large game changer in this field was the Stuxnet attack to the Iranian nuclear plant Natanz. The Stuxnet computer worm compromised the industrial controllers brought by an insider with a USB stick. This malicious exploit was installed and caused substantial damage to the equipment.
