Types of Network Attacks
According to different resources, most of these attacks likely deployed through application-layer network protocol that operates over TCP ports 139 and 445, which provides various services such as file and printer sharing and remote access services. The intrusions used arbitrary code execution and performed an unauthorized activity on information technology infrastructures in the region. The attacks exploited vulnerable or improperly configured applications, services, and operating systems.
Checking the security reports of the ISPs in the region proofs that how the network infrastructure extraordinarily vulnerable and needs immediate attention. Out of one hundred random email communication, more than 95/% of the mail shows a poor reputation or sign of vulnerabilities. Most of the communications on the network must be critically exposed to unauthorized third parties or parties that carried out network attacks successfully and use the system to circulate botnets or spam.
Based on the global threat analysis, what poor email reputation proves – the security of the email communications through the network was untrusted or displaying behavior that is exceptionally bad, malicious, or undesirable. In most cases, when the security level of the network is low, the confidentiality of the message gets questionable. Any communication carried out through the poisoned network most likely rejected by the intended receiver (user, system, and network). Additionally, there is a high probability of tampering the content of the message carried through the corrupted network.
The report aggregated the spectrum of risk related to the information technology infrastructure and users’ online activities in the region. Of course, due to time constraints, this report doesn’t show in-depth analysis to get a more extensive understanding of the threat levels. If further details needed, I recommend performing more comprehensive exploration. With the help of threat intelligence and monitoring users’ online activities, cyber-security professionally can distinguish further on what’s going on in the network. I encourage internet users in the region to find a way to establish trusted communication in an exceptionally volatile digital environment.
