DarkSide launched a string of high-profile attacks, including the Colonial Pipeline incident.
It has also been actively updating its technique, such as with a DarkSide Linux variant targeting VMware ESXi servers.
In the first half of this year, cybersecurity strongholds were surrounded by cybercriminals waiting to pounce at the sight of even the slightest crack in defenses to ravage valuable assets.
Threats and risks from all angles soon closed in, bringing with them updated tactics and greater motivation to affect targeted industries. These security issues include high-profile modern ransomware attacks, active campaigns, critical vulnerabilities, Covid-19-related scams, and other threats, not to mention developing threats in the cloud and the internet of things (IoT).
We investigate these in our midyear roundup report, "Attacks From All Angles: 2021 Midyear Cybersecurity Report."
To better prepare for the future, let us retrace our steps so far this year in the volatile landscape of cybersecurity.
