Cyber Risk Report – January

January was all about the increase in the value of Bitcoin, while only short-lived, it has moved attackers away from ransomware attacks and onto malicious coin mining applications – here’s your Cyber Risk report for January.

The state of cybersecurity moves towards a positive with the arrival of the new year. The risk of attack is ever so slightly reduced as we move out of the festive period and people return to work and normality.

The arrival of the Spectre and Meltdown vulnerabilities has caused a lot of commotion in the world with many of the “talking heads” purveying doom and apocalyptic conditions ahead but the reality could not be further from the truth.

This report covers the period from January 1st to January 31st 2018 and was compiled by Peter Bassill, CEO of Hedgehog Security.
