Fortinet released its latest Threat Landscape report, and according to Market Watch, it details data breaches and attacks such as Sony Europe being hit by another SQL injection attack. In addition, recent security issues including the International Monetary Fund (IMF) suffering a critical data breach, hacktivism group LulzSec's continued attack on the U.S. government and the rise of spam despite a three month decline are all included. Fortinet claims there is a definite rise in data breaches, attacks and spam.

 


"’We are indeed entering a new era of cybersecurity, one where proactive measures are being put in place and this month's attacks show the importance of keeping patches up-to-date to help avoid exploitation by malicious code,’ said Derek Manky, senior security strategist at Fortinet. ‘It's also important to employ an IPS solution to help block malicious code looking to exploit vulnerable software and a Web application firewall to help protect your public facing digital assets.’"
