    Vulnerabilities And Threat Trend Reports Of Skybox Security

    Vulnerabilities in cloud containers increased by 45 percent compared to 2019 and even more compared to 2018. Less than one percent of the newly released vulnerabilities were exploited, and only ten percent developed a working exploit. In 2020, there is a trend towards deep vulnerabilities that pose threats to multiple products that use the same code. Only 15 percent of all malware attacks are carried out by malicious cryptomining software, which was the tool of choice for many cybercriminals. The resulting gap is now filled by ransomware and backdoors.

    Skybox Security, one of the world’s leading providers of cybersecurity management, recently announced the release of the half-year update of the vulnerability and threat trends report. This analyzes weaknesses, exploits and threats from the first half of the season. The report, created by a team of security analysts is designed to help organizations adapt their security strategy to the reality of the current threat landscape.

    A Successful Attack On A Container Can Have Far-Reaching Consequences

    So it’s no surprise that new vulnerabilities are emerging within cloud environments, according to the director of Skybox Security. The company experts are worried about attackers that start an exploit race as soon as a vulnerability is discovered. A successful attack on a container can have far-reaching consequences. Compared to other technologies, containers can be replicated in greater numbers and more quickly enlarge in a very short time and cause extremely high damage.

    However, this also means reporting vulnerabilities when they are identified. It is important for customers to be aware of these vulnerabilities, even if the environment is constantly changing. They must be able to evaluate the likelihood of attack and the associated consequences, together with them prioritize other vulnerabilities in the rest of the environment, including hybrid networks and virtual networks.
