There has been an exponential increase in cyberattacks around the globe in the last five years and a major chunk of it happened in October each year, according to a study by InfoSec Institute.
A similar offensive appears to be building up this month, judging from the study's projections for an "October surprise" as well as observations of cyberattacks that have occurred so far.
The study underscores that the attacks that have occurred in the month of October in the past five years have been traced back to mainly five offending entities — Russia, China, North Korea, Iran, and a catchall grouping termed anonymous. The anonymous grouping is used to refer to unclaimed attacks with unknown assailants and could not be linked to any offending parties or nations.
