New Study Confirms Growing Cyber Risk in the Oil and Gas Sector

In a recent post, we discussed the growing cybersecurity threat faced by oil and gas companies as they increase their use of Internet of Things (IoT) devices, machine-to-machine (M2M) communications, and supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems. The “high-tech oilfield” relies on these tools to transmit data from pipelines and equipment to central operations centers, where analytics tools are used to detect potential problems and safety concerns. This convergence of operational technology (OT) and information technology (IT) dramatically increases the risk of a security breach.

New Report: IoT Devices Used to Mount Massive-Scale Attacks

New Report: IoT Devices Used to Mount Massive-Scale Attacks

Hackers are using compromised Internet of Things (IoT) devices to attack ecommerce and other web sites, according to a report published Oct. 12 by the Akamai Technologies Threat Research team. The researchers noted a recent spate of attacks in which hackers attempted to gain access to the sites using login and password combinations from the recent Yahoo! security breach, in which half a billion accounts were stolen. Because many people reuse their passwords, hackers often try stolen credentials in other sites to see if they work.
