I am back to blogging, but my blog posts now appear on the Varonis blog. I will keep publishing links to those posts here for my loyal followers.
The media coverage of NotPetya has hidden what might have been a more significant attack: a brute force attack on the UK Parliament. While for many it was simply fertile ground for Twitter Brexit jokes, an attack like this that targets a significant government body is a reminder that brute force remains a common threat to be addressed.
It also raises important questions as to how such an attack could have happened in the first place. These issues do suggest that we need to look deeper into this important, but often misunderstood type of attack.
