4,540 Ransomware incidents in first-half... Triple last year

KISA's trend report…58% of malware is Ransomware

The Nayana incident, which paid $ 1.2 million, will increase hackers demanding money in second-half.

▲ The photo shows the Integrated Control Center of KISA on June 28 when PETYA Ransomware infection case was found. In the first half of this year, the number of Ransomware incidents reported to the Korea Internet & Security Agency (KISA) was 4, 540, which is more than triple that of last year. Ransomware is a malware that requires money for recovery after encrypting important files. According to the "Q2 Cyber ​​Threat Trend Report" published by KISA on the 19th, Ransomware demage reports increased 3.6 times from 990 in 1Q to 3,550 in 2Q. The number of reported demages in first-half is 4,540, which is 3.2 times higher than last year's 1,438 cases. In 2015, there were 770 cases. Because the impact of powerful Ransomware such as WannaCry and Petya was huge. 255 of 436 malwares collected in 2Q were Ransomware. Ransomware's share is 58.5%, up 14.5% from 1Q(44%). And it was the second most common type of malware, accounting for 30% (130), which was 17.3% more than the previous quarter. The information extortion type malware is mainly used to collect prior information for targeting attack such as APT (Advanced Persistent Threat). ▲ Source from KISA In 1Q, the advanced fake way via spear phishing (targeting type) emails and shortcut icons was used to distribute malware. In 2Q, large-scale distribution using Windows vulnerability (SMB) was popular. Attackers used various infiltration ways such as spreading malware distributed itself using the latest vulnerabilities, and attacking the server directly. Meanwhile, hacker's command control (C&C) servers were the most in US in 2Q. It seems because hackers used the US commercial cloud as the C&C server. Russia and China followed US.. The number of high-risk vulnerabilities identified in Q2 reached 1,110, nearing double 671 in 1Q. The company that had the most vulnerabilities was Google accounting for 11% of the total. Among the 126 Google vulnerabilities, 119 vulnerabilities were related to mobile OS, Android. Microsoft (8%), Adobe (7%) and Apple (6%) followed Google. KISA predicted that APT attacks and malware distribution will be very popular in 3Q based on the information collected by information extortion type malware because of the surge of information extortion type malware in 2Q. Web hosting company Nanyana, demaged by Ransomware, paid $ 1.2 million to hackers, so KISA worried the cases that hackers demand money will increase. KISA said, "We should pay special attention to internal network security management to prevent malware such as Petya Ransomware spread to the internal network from infecting. Please keep security updates of the OS and software up to date and periodically back up."

23 Korean ICT companies including NPCore attended.

The company has a 1:1 business meeting with six local companies including BlueZebra, CAT Telecom, PlanetComm, Control Data (CDG), i-en and XPLINK. Among them, NPCore received positive responses from BlueZebra, CAT Telecom, PlanetComm and CDG.

Particularly, after returning to Korea, NPCore acrively promoted the plan about the partnership agreement with BlueZebra and the PoC with CAT Telecom. As the result, on May 4th, NPCore signed a distributorship contract with BlueZebra in Thailand and planned PoC with CAT Telelcom concretely to be the first step of local distributor activity.

NPCore's CEO, Han, S.C. said "This agreement helped expand the Southeast Asian market to Thailand. I'm planning to visit Thailand again within May to support PoC."
